Hi,

I'd like to get in touch with driver developers, is there any way I
could help make RTL2831U driver work with Compro VideoMate U80. I would
like to actively participate. My programming skills are well below
required to write kernel modules, so I know I would be no use there. But
anything else, testing with VideoMate U80, sending debug logs, I think I
could do that.

I've tried http://linuxtv.org/hg/~jhoogenraad/rtl2831-r2 driver, it
looked promising. U80 device was recognised as VideoMate U90, /dev/dvb
entries were created. But when scanning it says there's no signal. Debug
gives TPS_NON_LOCK, Signal NOT Present, rtd2830_soft_reset, etc. (I
could post message log, if it's any use to somebody).
U80 has a led which (on windows) shows if TV stick is tuned in and
working, when scanning on linux it's always on.

I've also tried to compile http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/rtl2831u/ but
for now it's based on old dvb tree and seems to be incompatible with new
kernels (mine 2.6.34.7-0.3).

Is anttip driver supposed to be included in kernel, but it looks like
development is going slow.

Thank you,
Ugnius
