Greg,

looking a bit through it now I discover that Michel is hosting the
latest so far with Manu's fixes from 2006-12-30.
http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2007-January/015384.html

The diff to the kromtek one is about 30K.
Manu's server is still down, but this should move you forward.

Hermann
