I've been following the List since Vol 25 Issue 28, in hopes of getting 
my receiver running under Linux. That covers the past 3 month. The unit 
is TBS Q-Box DVB-S, a USB receiver. Gunther requested photos and 
information, which I've now sent 3 times to http://www.bttv-gallery.de 
and to gmy at gmx.org <mailto:gmy at gmx.org> ,I now see it has entered a 
listing, but, my photos, & specs, have not been included, and the page 
is still requesting this information. To date, I've not received 
confirmation of receipt, of the information I've sent. Is it getting 
lost or ignored????

Breaking the Q-box down, the tuner is recognized as a 0299, similar to 
Technisat's unit. The Cypress chip cy7c68013A is apparently still in 
limbo, though Marco is also seeking it for Kworld's Opera 1. There are 
several other units like Luc Small's, Hanftek UMT-010 DVB-T USB2.0, that 
appear in both DVB-S&T, USB & PCI units, that also need this chip 
solved. I have no idea of what else is needed to extract the eprom, or 
xilling chip information. Are there no self help methods available, 
other than lsusb? I don't know where the Cypress chip fits in the scheme 
of things, but, I hope it's solved soon.
