Hi, folks

Currently most boards report the type of the channel decoder as
the frontend name. This has the disadvantage that if you have multiple
(hybrid) cards with the same channel decoder type, you will not be
able to distinguish them in the applications. Especially if you want to
use one of them for analog- and and the other one for digital TV, this
becomes a problem.
In my personal repository, i have a change that reports the board name
instead in saa7134-dvb.

Should i leave this in or remove it to stay consistent with other

Best regards
