Are we talking about the MD8800 (2X analog, DVB-T and DVB-S) ?
Situation is as follows:
- I had some trouble with my improved driver for tda827x. This is almost solved
  now and will be published the next days
- Afterwards i intend to work on improving the tda10086 driver.
- For the md8800 we will need a additional driver for its LNB controller.
  I have a datasheet, implementing it should not be too difficult.

The problem is that i don't have any DVB-S hardware. "Remote" debugging takes
its time....
