Remember, we had this one on the video4linux-list.

It has a conventional DVB-S can tuner, likely covered by dvb-pll or easy
to add, at least all questions were asked.

The problem was the not yet supported tda10086 channel decoder.

This has changed and also no problems with the dual PCI bridge are
expected, except Mike took care to disable it ;)

Should be worth to dig it out.
