Yeah. The patch already merged into v4l-dvb repository and also merged into 
kernel 2.6.26 does only support s-video and compite input of both A700 cards 
(Avermedia AverTV dvb-s Pro and AverTV DVB-S Hybrid+FM).

The other pending patches do add support for DVB-S input to both card 
versions. But this is not yet ready for being merged.
At least here the tuning is not yet reliable for some frequencies (or does get 
no lock depending very hardly on some tuner gain settings). But most 
transponders of Astra-19.2°E I can get a good lock.

This is the latest version of the patch:

About RF analog input I cannot do much, as I do not have the hardware, and for 
XC2028 tuner one needs to check out the GPIO configuration.

If you would like to help you could try out or trace gpio lines some way to 
get RF input running. As far as I know to get XC2028 running you need to find 
out which pin does reset the tuner to finish firmware uploading.
