[linux-dvb] dvb-bt8xx driver

I have just added another budget dvb-t pci card (AverTV 761) to my pc 
running linux suse 9.2 - kernel 2.6.8-24 which already has a premium 
technotrend dvb-t pci card installed.

The drivers that came with the original suse 9.2 kernel as well as with 
the updated kernel I am now running never worked properly with the 
ttusb premium card, so I built and installed the necessary drivers from 
a cvs version of the dvb-kernel I downloaded at the time back when 
2.6.8 was still supported.

Unfortunately I only installed the drivers for the hardware I had at 
that time and did not install the dvb_bt8xx drivers I now need to use 
the avertv card.  I also cannot find the backup of the dvb-kernel cvs I 
made at the time ..

Since I cannot build the CVS dvb-cvs kernel any longer, can anyone tell 
me where I might be able to find a source for the dvb-kernel I could 
build on my system.

I really hesitate to update my kernel simply because of the huge amount 
of time it always takes to make all my other system hardware function 

I have also tried going back to the original suse kernel drivers but in 
spite of everything I cannot get the ttdvb premium pci to work 
properly... the avertv card works fine though! :-)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
