<schorpp> 00:06.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder (rev 03)
<schorpp>         Subsystem: Conexant Unknown device 0084

<schorpp> mine not, if pciids db are correct ive a newer revision of chips
<schorpp> mostly register changes
<schorpp> so the tuner doesnt get programmed at all
<schorpp> checking rev check code in core...
<schorpp> no
<schorpp> so anyone has got latest revisions databooks for the chips?
<schorpp> if not i return to the cards distributor
<schorpp> im no puzzle world champion
<schorpp> a hauppauge dev at the list stated in last june stuff is released to public ( but he meant only code, I assume)
<schorpp> I ask the distributor now if he gives me the books, he claims linux support in his advertisment, we'll see...

but I dont expect to get the databooks or full programming information.
