Message to all:

If some kind individual would mail me a Cinergy HTC USB stick, with the Micronas 
Demod, then I'd be happy to spend my free time reverse engineering the demod and 
creating a GPL driver.

I'm tired of the Micronas nonsense so let's get a barebones GPL driver in v4l-dvb.

If someone will ship me the hardware I'll do the rest.
