 	This card can be made to work.

 	I've forwarded some stuff I got from Ray that helped me.

 	I've got it to work with a specific v4l-dvb tree that Manu made 
(see below).  I've only been able to make it work with Linux 2.6.15 on 
FC4.  When I upgraded my FC4 to Linux 2.6.16, then Manu's v4l-dvb tree 
wouldn't compile anymore.  Simliarly it wouldn't compile on FC5.

 	After that, it works great.  I've been using it with Echostar 7 at 
119 west.

 	Thanks for your help.

 	I tried to compile Manu's modules on Fedora Core 5, but I got an error:

cgi-bin-hgwebdir-cgi-v4l-algo-test-70266933831b/v4l/flexcop-usb.c:547: error: 
unknown field 'owner' specified in initializer

 	FYI, it compiled fine with Fedora Core 4, but I can't test it with the 
VP1025 because it's at work, so I should be able to test it on Monday.
