Hi Romain,

1) Please don't top post
2) Please don't drop the mailing list from your reply (use the "reply 
all" feature of your email client)
3) To more accurately reflect the device's name, I've moved the wiki 
page to:
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Pinnacle_PCTV_Dual_Hybrid_Pro_PCI_Express_%283010i%29

In addition, I've applied our standard formatting for device articles.  
As opposed to external links to your page, would you like to upload the 
pictures to the wiki, as well as transfer over the text of the lspci 
output etc..
Thanks
