Correction:  lgdt330x (with support for both DT3302 & DT3303) will be 
included in 2.6.13, but DVB support for FusionHDTV5 Gold will require an 
update of the video4linux code from cvs.  2.6.13 has FusionHDTV5 Gold 
analog support only, however, FusionHDTV3 Gold is fully supported in 
this release.

So, to make it simple... the easiest way to install support for 
FusionHDTV5 Gold is:

Kernel 2.6.13 + video4linux cvs.

Also, any newer boards (that are NOT based on cx88 chip) that require 
the lgdt330x driver will need to use the newest version of that driver 
found within dvb-kernel cvs.  Patrick's check-callback patch is required 
for drivers that do not define certain callbacks, and the patch is 
currently in -mm ... it is slated to be included in 2.6.14
