Hallo, I'm writing here becuase I need some  informations about the
Asus P7131 Hybrid (1043:4876, board: ASUSTeK P7131 Hybrid 
[card=112,autodetected]).

1.
Which is the newest firmware for this board? I downloaded the
"revision 29" from lifeview, is this the right one?

2.
Is it possible to have the DVB-T on the TV input?
In windows I plug the antenna (i have only one cable) to the TV-input 
and then I can decide between analog or digital TV.
With Linux I have to plug the digital antenna on the FM input. That 
means plugging and unplugging each time I want to switch between analog 
or digital. (well, I will build an Y-cable!)

3.
Digital reception is not very good. If I use my Pinnacle Hybryd Pro 
Stick I can watch more channels and reception is more stable. There is 
something I can do? I read about a "lowNoiseAmplifier" in kernel 2.6.22. 
I have kernel 2.6.20. Do I have to upgrade?
(Sorry, but I cannot re-test the board under windows so I don't know if 
it's a "driver" problem or a "feature" of the board, lol)

Information about my system:
Hardware: Pentium IV 3.2GHz
O.S.: Linux Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04
Kernel: 2.6.20-16-generic
V4L: updated on 4 Aug 2007 ( hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb)


Thank you for your suggestions.

Paolo
