I've contacted Dâniel Fraga and fixed the remaining issue with his PowerColor
Real Angel 330: firmware should be version 2.5 in order to work. He also
confirmed that the GPIOs are the same as yours for his board.

I've already committed the fixes for it at cx88-xc3028. On his board, both radio
and TV worked fine.

To make easier for all I've changed the firmware extracting tool
to get the firmwares from cx88vid.sys. The extracting tool, and the generated
firmware still needs to be tested.

Dâniel & Daniel, could you please test ? Hopefully, I didn't make any mistake
when changing the extracting tool ;)

The tool is available at:


The instructions for usage written at the beginning of the file:

# For firmware version 2.5, you can use the following procedure:
#       1) Download the windows driver with something like:
#               wget http://www.power-color.com/drivers/real_angel/RA330_Driver_and_Appl
#                       or
#               wget ftp://driver1.cptech.com.tw/Driver/RA330TV/ra330_xp.zip
#       2) Extract the file cx88vid.sys from the zip into the current dir:
#               unzip -x RA330_Driver_and_Application.zip "Real Angel Driver & Application/Driver/Plug_Play/cx88vid.sys"
#       3) run the script:
#               ./extract_xc3028.pl cx88vid.sys
#       4) copy the generated file:
#               cp xc3028-v25.fw /lib/firmware

The real test were done using Dâniel's cx88vid.sys from his CD. I expect that
the site has the same file, otherwise, md5 will fail, and the firmware won't
be extracted.
