Hi, folks

In my pesonal repository:
   http://linuxtv.org/hg/~hhackmann/v4l-dvb
are some updates for these cards:
- Hermanns bugfix for the i2c gate control
- support for the :4876 variant without eeprom
- Hermanns? proposal for improved antenna switching.

Please test it and report.
Owners of the 'old' variant still should not need a firmware
file. The patch relies on an undocumented feature of the tda10046:
If it finds an eeprom, it will boot from it anyway and the
driver does not try to download if there is a valid firmware in the
chip.
The antenna switching now uses the radio/dvb input even if composite
or s-video is selected to allow parallel dvb and capture of these
inputs.

Best regards
   Hartmut
