Just in case you didn't see and in case you are using dvb-usb: it is quite 
simple to add support for a hardware PID filter driven board, you just 
need to fill in two or three functions and set the capability that this 
board needs or can do PID filtering.

Otherwise I can only agree to Micheal's comments. Especially having 
multipe USBs in use it can be useful.

Patrick.
