Hi Romain,

Thank you for contacting the list. The initial steps you can take to 
help are:

a) provide the relevant output of:

"lspci -vvn" -- which will provide the subsystem ID info, as well as 
confirm the PCIe bridge

and from "dmesg" -- which may provide some other info about detected 
components upon the card

b) visually identify and report what components are being used on the card

c) start off an article for the card in the wiki 
(http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Pinnacle_Dual_Hybrid_Pro_PCI_Express)

and hopefully also be able to upload some images of the device to that 
article.

After which, everyone will be in a much better position to advise from 
there. Hopefully the components are similar to other supported devices, 
and it may be a question of some minor tinkering to get it supported. 
However, as support for PCIe based devices is relatively immature, it is 
more likely not to be such a case. But still, your device may be 
decently similar or related to someone's work (or interests) that they 
may be able to help you out in regards to support development -- but 
there is no guarantee. First things first though; lets see what info you 
can provide.

Cheers
