that is what i meant. If you look closer you will find a tda10048 on
your board and we have just these two cards for now.

The HVR 1110r3 (card=156) in TS serial mode and LNA, specific gpios are
in use, and the Leadtek DTV 1000S Mike has a testing repo for now in TS
parallel, but without analog tuner support. At least no analog demod in
the eeprom.

Have a look at the related threads.
Hauppauge HVR 1110 and DVB
Leadtek Winfast DTV-1000S

Both have links to firmware either from Steven or Terry.

Maybe you can get it to load, but the other questions are still
unanswered then.

Cheers,
Hermann
