Hi all,

Technisat was not able to release the binary driver so far, but BBTI 
(windows-driver writer company) was:

It can be found here: http://www.bbti.us/support.htm (bottom) . It is a 
package with instruction and the binary blob for the cx24113. I used it it 
should work with v4l-dvb and kernel between 2.6.18 and 2.6.25.

Unfortunately this is only a binary module, not GPL. It will taint your 
kernel. Conexant for this part of technology is not very GPL friendly.

best regards,

PS: Some guys who have contacted me personally are in BCC.
