Hi list,

I'd like to enumerate connected DVB devices from my softawre, based on DVB
Thank to ioctl FE_GET_INFO, I'm able to get frontends name, but they are not
"clear" enough for users.

After a "quick look" in /var/log/messages I discovered that adapters name
are much expressives:

> ...
> DVB: registering new adapter (ASUS My Cinema U3000 Mini DVBT Tuner)
> DVB: registering adapter 0 frontend 0 (DiBcom 7000PC)...
> ...

So, I tried to figure out a way to get "ASUS My Cinema U3000 Mini DVBT
Tuner" string from adapter, instead of "DiBcom 7000PC" from adapter's
Unsuccefully so far.

Any suggestions?
