[linux-dvb] Problem with Terratec Cinergy HT PCI

Hi,

I'm new to linux-tv and i hope this is the right place to find a 
solution for my troubles ;)
I recently bought a Terratec Cinergy HT PCI (hybrid analog/digital card, 
http://www.linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/TerraTec_Cinergy_HT_PCI), 
knowing that it is supported with a recent Linux Kernel (it uses a 
Philips SAA7133 chipset for analog, but you know that ;)). What I did 
not know is that i bought a card with an updated chipset, obviously 
they're building their boards based on a Conexant CX23880 chipset from 
now on... whatever. This is the output of dmesg:

at the moment, it would be ok for me if i get it working with analog tv 
only, but it should support both of course.

has anybody experience with this new type of Cinergy HT PCI cards? Any 
feedback would be appreciated. If it is not yet supported (with the 
Conexant chipset), I could also help getting it supported.

regards,

Oliver
