Is it possible to add this driver to the linuxtv.org repo? My, or Manu
or you? Looks like there is only one device using this driver currently.
Also Manu's original mxl500x driver seems to be much more sensitive than
current mxl5005s. I don't know what we should do with this driver, but
from users perspective this situation is not good. There is rather many
devices using this tuner.
