Hi all,

the driver is already merged inside the main v4l-dvb. Except that the USB 
IDs are not the same. (I'm refering to your previous email saying the PID 
is 0x0233 - whereas the one of the device I had was 0x228 and it was 
called DVB-T Flash).

To give it a try, just go the dib0700_devices.c and add your IDs in the 
stk7070p-part.

good luck,
Patrick.
