On my System I have installed an old DVB-FF and a new WinTV HVR1300.
The new cvs linuxTV driver are used.
I would like to test my new WinTV HVR1300. (use the driver for HVR1100)
If I make a make insmod then I get this dmesg:

tvmixer: Unknown symbol unregister_sound_mixer

After the new driver has been installed:

#:/usr/local/src/DVB# ls /dev/dvb/

#:/usr/local/src/DVB# ls /dev/video*
/dev/video0  /dev/video1

There is only one DVB device, but two video devices.
It seems that the HVR is mapped to /dev/video like an analog Card.
All my other DVB Cars are mapped to /dev/dvb/...

I also want to use the IR. Did it work like the same way then the Nexus?
