I've managed to get the Pinnacle 310i card to work (at least partially,
and perhaps it is not so stable) under Linux in dvb-t mode. If anyone's
interested, please write to me. I cannot post a patch and get it merged
because some changes definitely break other drivers.

As an aside, does anybody know how to tune a dvb-t channel and save the
raw mpeg stream to disk? I have used the scan utility to obtain a
channels.conf file and it works (I can see tv with mplayer and xine, in
very good quality). I've tried to record a show with mencoder, but it
does not seem to work very well. When capturing the raw stream it writes
about 100 MB (Bytes, not bits...) _per second_ to disk (a 30-second clip
take 339 MB!), is it normal?

Thank you in advance,
Pierluigi Rolando
