That is not exactly true:

--- start of quote
A Nice bloke from the US has been working on Linux drivers and we now have 
support for:

HVR1300 (in Progress)
Nova-DT (Bristol - In Progress)

These are all made available via linuxtv.org

I'm not a native speaker, but this seems to be "past progressive" meaning 
that this _is_ done already. This is definitely not the case.

With the release for the DiB7700 (which I try to do this week), it will 
also be possible to add support for the Nova-T 500.
