I'll try asking again since my replies in gmail were not including the
correct subject heading.
Can this code for cx23885 analog support be adapted for the DViCO Fusion
HDTV7 Dual Express which also uses the cx23885?  Currently the driver for
that card is digital only and I am stuck with a free antiquated large
satellite system that is analog only in my apartment. I am willing to put in
the work if someone can point me in the right direction.  Thank you,
