>Hi!

>When trying to use a Hauppauge Nova-T Stick on a big-endian architecture
(such as powerpc) no frontend can be attached.

>The attached patch fixes this problem by removing two lines in
>dib0700_ctrl_rd() that try to correct the endianess on two values that
already are correct:
>-    /* think about swapping here */
>-    value = le16_to_cpu(value);
>-    index = le16_to_cpu(index);

>With this simple patch this dvb hardware works great, thanks to anyone
involved for the good work. :)
