An analog PCI tuner card from Leadtek


Can be found included in an Asus S'presso barebone from AsusTek. As can be seen from that ASUS product page, the included device is supposed to be an ASUS TV/FM card, however, as the pictures illustrate this is a completely different device; The card is actually a Leadtek Winfast TV2000 XP Expert, which itself, given the LR6611 board markings, is likely an OEM from LifeView. Apparently, this is not an isolated case: see [1] and [2].


At first cold boot it is recognized as a cx88 device but no tuner type set

lspci output:
