I am just wondering if anybody succeeded to make a LeadTek PxPVR2200 work... 
It's using Conexant CX23885+CX23417 + Xceive silicon tuner.
The card is mostly sold in Eastern Europe but it is only coming with Windows 
drivers and v4l does not recognize it:
cx23885 driver version 0.0.1 loaded
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:07:00.0[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
cx23885[0]: Your board isn't known (yet) to the driver.  You can
cx23885[0]: try to pick one of the existing card configs via
cx23885[0]: card=<n> insmod option.  Updating to the latest
cx23885[0]: version might help as well.
cx23885[0]: Here is a list of valid choices for the card=<n> insmod option:
cx23885[0]:    card=0 -> UNKNOWN/GENERIC
cx23885[0]:    card=1 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1800lp
cx23885[0]:    card=2 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1800
cx23885[0]:    card=3 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1250
cx23885[0]:    card=4 -> DViCO FusionHDTV5 Express
cx23885[0]:    card=5 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1500Q
cx23885[0]:    card=6 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1500
cx23885[0]:    card=7 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1200
cx23885[0]:    card=8 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1700
cx23885[0]:    card=9 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1400

cx23885[0]:    card=11 -> DViCO FusionHDTV DVB-T Dual Express

No video device is created for this card therefore it's totally unusable 
under Linux.
I played with the card by changing <card> option but none of them worked. I 
used the latest mercurial drivers but it did not help.
