The hvr3000 tree takes a very different approach to implementation vs 
the hvr4000. The HVR3000 adds support to the saa and cx88 tree's for 
multiple exclusive frontends on a single bus, enabling applications to 
open either a DVB-T or DVB-S frontend.

It's proof of concept code. I asked for feedback very early on the new 
mechanism and the general consensus was positive. However, the tree 
contains changes to the DVB frontend framework and should be reviewed 
more closely prior to any updates/rework/merge activity.

Given the current hybrid tuner project, it would be wise to leave the 
HVR3000 and HVR4000 tree's as-is. These product use hybrid tuners 
FMD1216 and will benefit from the tuner refactoring projects.
