Thank you for your hint, and sry for the late response - had some finals
for this term - todays my first day of hollidays, so i spent some time on
the LR506 thing again.
I have played i bit with the patch. You had right, that
m920x_identify_state wont work. But imho, if the usb-DevID=0x506, then it
is in cold-state, so setting ".identify_state = NULL" should to the work.
I set ".usb_ctrl = CYPRESS_FX2" to use the native functions provided in
dvb-usb-firmware.c to download the firmware. Than i tryed to figure out
the binary format of the .fw file. I guess I got it right.
I wrote a script which converts the snooped data into the propriated
format. I gave it a try and to my surprise it worked :)
So, for short: Now I am able to download the fw to the cold device and
lsusb tells afterwards, that the device has re-registered as the warm one
The firmware can be found at:
Now i have to figure out, how i can attach a frontend to it. No Idea how
this will work - but ill play a bit with it.
Thx for the hint, again.
And if someone could give me some tipps I would be glad.
