Just in case you didn't see and in case you are using dvb-usb: it is quite
simple to add support for a hardware PID filter driven board, you just
need to fill in two or three functions and set the capability that this
board needs or can do PID filtering.
Otherwise I can only agree to Micheal's comments. Especially having
multipe USBs in use it can be useful.
