The best bet is to compile steven's branch (~stoth/hvr3000) with vanilla 
kernel 2.6.18. Changes introduced in this branch include support for 
multiple exclusive frontends on a single bus, it's somehow experimental 
and it will need several changes prior to include in the main branch.

Analog works ok, DVB-T ok, DVB-S working with some troubles with diseq.
