Thanks for the info,

I've contacted Avi, but have managed to piece together the ts2pes code
removed from dvb_filter.c with sections of the code from av7110_ipack.c as
nothing in the ipack code seems to be hardware dependant.

It compiles and loads, so now just to wait for my Margi card to arrive in
the mail before I can test it...
