Hello Luca.

Do you have a public repository of your work ?
I am very interesting.

I have analysed all b2c2 files linux driver,
and the only thing that I have not:
it's the detailed datasheet of the flexcop,
and the datasheet of this demodulator : 
what is the best init of this tuner: 
details about AGC, equalizer, etc..

For me, this web site is very good to see all archive of this mailing list:

At soon, Yvan.
