As I already wrote very often to that list: the current vp702x-fe.c is not 
working - I have no clue what exactly is wrong.

All I can say is, that over the past few weekends I more or less 
successfully tried to get it running, but somehow this box is very, let's 
say, sensitive.

If you do not do everything in the exact order, nothing will work...

Data sheets :), I have information from Twinhan, but they are only 
partially helpful, as they are not so easy to follow...

I will try my best and keep you informed,
Patrick.
