the etc can hold some information, better don't drop parts of the eeprom
dump.

The card is not yet supported, but was seen previously on some Sony Vaio
stuff.

We have no reports for any details on it, but there is a slight chance
that it is very similar to card=138, the AVERMEDIA_M115.

There is no DVB-T support yet and you would need recent XCeive firmware
in /lib/firmware if my guessing is right.

Are you sure DVB-T for this one is announced at all?

Cheers,
