[linux-dvb] GDI Black Gold [14c7:0108] cx88 card

Hello,

I'm interested in getting this card working under Linux as well, it's 
labelled GDI2500PCTV on the back, and has a Conexant CX23881 visible on 
the front, with a Philips "TU1216/1 H P" RF box...  Looks like there may 
be some more ICs under the metal box, but I'd have to desolder it to 
check what they were (which I can do if necessary).

There seems to be TU1216 support in both v4l/saa7134-dvb.c and 
v4l/budget-av.c (code cut-n-paste by the look of it), but I can't see a 
way to select this tuner with the cx88xx module (e.g. CARDLIST.tuner).

So... I'm game for trying to get this working, and have a bit of kernel 
programming experience, but is there anything else I'm likely to need to 
know before I set out on this?

Cheers!

Tim.
