I don't know anything about the IF within the saa7136 -- I would guess it is something like a tda8290 or tda8295, which may need some work for analog support.  For digital tv, you can attach the tda18271 the same way as is done in cx23885-dvb for the hvr1800, with alt_tuner=1.

Hi Manu

I'd like to hear it clearly - should I safe my time to play with this device?

Do you mean by this answer that you know someone already writes the
driver for AsusTV Hybrid Volar HX USB device ?

(And driver will be opensource and usable with any kernel I need ?)

What is the timeplan of this event ?

Thanks for your answers.
