Hi, folks

In my personal repository:
  http://linuxtv.org/hg/~hhackmann/v4l-dvb-experimental/
you will find a driver that supports this card, DVB-T and DVB-S

It might also work for
- one section of the MD8800
- similar boards based on saa713x, tda10086, tda826x, isl6405

The board will show up as MD8800. According to Hermann, the configurations
for analog TV and DVB-T are identical.
If you want to use the board with DVB-S, you will need to load the
saa7134-dvb module with the option "use_frontend=1". The default 0 is
DVB-T. For those who got the board from a second source: don't forget
to connect the 12v (the floppy supply) connector.

I don't have a dish, so i depend on your reports. To get the MD8800
running, i need a volunteer who does the testing for me. He should be able
to apply patches, compile the driver and read kernel logs.

Good luck
  Hartmut
