used Your freemail adress in the support form?
no good idea, linear-tech e.g. say they dont accept gmx, etc.

maxim/dallas reacted to samples and data request about their silicon tuner to me not, too.
even *sales*@twinhan doesnt care about freemailings, too, i asked about 
their new dvb-s2 ci card.

You're working on the new TT dvb-s2 card, arent You? Asked Technotrend?
But nowadays chip manufacturer supplied windows WHQL drivers/-kits are used, 
so they maybe dont know about, too. 

we better write biz professional air mail or fax with company 
headers and with maintainers (as CEOs) signatures, does linuxtv.org has one?

how did You find out? linux/windows i2c sniffer/probing tools? which?
what for should a demodulator need 256 registers? cant be, modern 
fully automatic devices come with lesser configuration effort, normally

disassembling the windows driver or studying it with remote kernel 
debugging would be a hard long way... :(

and the databook will surely not drop into p2p nets...
