Hmm... Looks like the Twinhan barfs without the i2c_hw=1 parm, but in my 
experience FusionHDTV5 Lite barfs WITH the i2c_hw=1 parm.

I'm not sure what i2c_hw=1 does, nor did I do any research on it.  What 
I do know, is that modprobing dvb-bt8xx alone is enough to get 
FusionHDTV5 Lite to work.  (dvb-bt8xx will automatically load up bt878 
and bttv modules)

Maybe the proper fix to make these cards work together would be to cause 
FusionHDTV5 Lite to ignore the i2c_hw=1 parm.  Manu, what do you think?
