As i said ..

"With the case of DVB, things are moving, ie not stagnant due to the
arrival/addition of new stuff, so that is also an important aspect in
deciding how to go about. A high maintenance path is not a viable option."

The reason being DVB is a fast moving commercial target. Linux/OSS just
barely tries to catch up.

I don't care what option is chosen (for the same reason had been
silent), but the above is extremely important. There are more things
important to DVB than just Hybrid/Analog device support alone.
