Yes, that would have put away, all my work to waste..

My first aim is to get a driver working by atleast quite a couple of cards..
Once that is achieved, i don't have any problem in having new patches, 
in fact i would be happy if some patches would make it look like a 
standard DVB card. :-)

A diff between 1.39 and 1.38 shows the bttv dependancy removed from the 
or51211 frontend, that was making the tree not to compile properly. I 
don't see anything other than that.

Or is there something more ? I mean what you committed ..
