I didn't say anything because it needed me to create a working driver,
which i haven't done at that point of time, eventhough i saw the
discussion on the same flying past (ie, not started working on it)

Was working with some other devices as well, so did not want to spend
much time with the 9005.
Go ahead, It 's not very hard to write a good driver, having patience is
the key to it. Best of luck on your stab at the first DVB driver
