- For technical reasons, the tuning is quite slow with this chipset. Driver
   and applications do several tuning attempts during initialization.
   This causes the delay.
- Adding support for the remote control needs to be done by people who
   have this card. I can't do that.
- The card most probably doesn't have a hardware compressor. In this case,
   the compression needs to be done in the appication. It will not be
   done in the driver.
