[linux-dvb] Leadtek Winfast PxDVR 3200 H

I just added some photos to the wiki that I took of my 3200 about a month ago, it's just some close ups of the chips. I forgot all about them until you posted this message, figured I should probably pull my finger out and upload them.
I haven't taken the shielding off the card, I can only assume there is a tuner in there, I will crack it open on of these days and take note (and photos) of what is inside.

There was already a page of sorts:
I've added to it. I don't have winodws on that machine, but it apears
someone has done that for me already.
I have some more photos, of even higher res is you want them, but won't
clutter up everyone's inbox if not need/ wanted.
