What is the code base you're working against? linux-tv cvs, mm or
plain linus?

What is needed in this driver? Is the typhoon card also based on this
chip? Do you have any hardware outline of these cards?
If I understand it correctly, the pci device, with the analog
functionality is the saa7134.
There is another external chip which controls the analog tuner (via i2c?).
The tda10046, is then dvb-t tuner?
How does the picture get back to the screen? Through an analog input of
the saa7134 or is there a way to get the mpeg feed directly?

I'm not that in a hurry, getting the thing to work would be a nice start.
Unfortunatly I'm a bit busy right now - but probably tomorrow I can
take a look at the drivers and the card and start hacking on it.
It would be really good, if you could sent me your patches till then, so
that we don't duplicate work.

Thanks,
