Hello,

The wiki states that the "LifeView TV Walker P Plus"-USB DVB-T Decoder is
currently not supported.

It is commented that:
> If you have one of these devices then send an email to the mailinglist  
> at <linux-dvb at linuxtv.org> and support can probably be added
> fairly quickly.

For now i was not able to find the according site on lifeview.com. Optical
it looks ident to the "TV Walker Q2"
[ http://www.lifeview.com.tw/html/products/external_tv/tv_walker_q2.htm ],
but mine is labeled as "LR506".

(as the wiki states that LifeView contains a TDA8275A)

The top of the stick can be opened without loosing any screws (just glued
down), beneath it I can see a miniature fan and two ICs
	Phillips 8275AC1
	CY7C68013A (Cypress?)
The outer cover on the bottom is also glued, but under it, is a metal
plate screwed onto the pcb.
Beneath it, ther I can see the
	TDA1004GHT SA1371.1

So, maybe this does not contain a 826x but a tda1004x

I can run this device under Windows XP, running in a VMWare ontop of my
Linux-OS, so if I should provide some USB-communication log, i will try to
recorde some (never done before).

Or if I can provide any other informations/to some tests, pls connact me.


With best regards,
Daniel Weigl
