please open a new thread for this and don't high jack Mireks issues by
top-posting on it.

For what I can test, I seem not to be able to reproduce it.

Maybe my English is too bad too, but what exactly you are having
troubles now left with?

To be honest, I don't get your report.

Mirek, beside other stuff, I have three triple capable devices in one
machine currently too, I don't claim that I'm through and none of them
has radio.

But, since you ask for _hybrid_ tuner stuff which supports DVB and radio
at once, at least _that_ is some sort of brain damage you should
definitely stay away from, it will never happen.

The TRIO should be capable to do it, since it has _three_ tuners on
different addresses and behind different i2c bridges, the DVB-S one, the
DVB-T one and the analog TV/radio one.

With three such cards I could imagine to crumble about something, but I
would not start with the analog radio.

However, you might or might not have a good point.
