Hi,

just analyzed the analog tv logfile, everything looks quite clear to me.
this device could get supported by the em28xx driver if someone could
get me a testdevice(which would be the fastest way) I could try to get
the analog part done at least (that's what I looked at). The DVB Part
shouldn't be too hard too since we can get everything from the
logfiles.
