Hello Mike,

The "B2C" model is otherwise known as the HVR-900 R2.  The problem for
the R2 isn't the em28xx support - it's support for the Micronas drx-d
demodulator.  The em28xx is fully supported, but the demodulator
driver is not and therefore the product is known to not work in the
v4l-dvb mainline.

I have one of the boards, but given the sheer complexity of the drx-d
driver combined with a lack of a DVB-T signal, I haven't tried to make
it work.
