Ah! That makes sense.... We have discontinued use of cvs a few weeks 
ago.  The repository is still available, but we are no longer updating 
it.  The new, official v4l-dvb repository uses mercurial.

I don't know if Mauro updated the howto pages yet, but this is what you 
should do:

1) wipe out your old v4l-dvb tree

2) install the mercurial package

3) hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb

4) cd v4l-dvb

5) make

6) (as root) make install

... in the future, to update your tree, do:

make pull  (from inside v4l-dvb)

...On the other hand, since you are familiar with git, you can pull from 
the v4l-dvb.git tree on kernel.org:

The card uses two "dee1601" tuners, which seem to be very similar, if 
not, the same as the Thomson DTT 7579.

Good stuff -- That's what I wanted to know.

Thanks for the report.
