I have tried for a long time to get the video/dvb stuff working on my Suse
Linux 9.1. I have tried to get reliable documentation on how to get somthing
working, but the documentation is fragmented and difuse. It is not easy to
get all the bits together and after spending a week on it I simply gave up.
I had no more time to spend on it. To get people interested in the
development and participate in testing etc. it has to become more
accessable. There has to be a "start package" including a howto and
recomendation on proven hardware. Remember that the vast majorety of users
has only one interest, which is to get it working.

I was not taking a go at v4l-dvb, since you asked me to wait on the same
in a previous mail. My personal development has been based on some tree
dated a while back on dvb-kernel, so as it is jumping straight away to
v4l-dvb, seems like an uphill task ..

I will be loosing a lot of time to move on to v4l-dvb at the moment,
when i should be putting more effort to get the drivers working properly.
