Hi!

I already did some work on the Avermedia dvb-s pro based on your patches. But 
it did not work correctly until now.
I listed all data here: 
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/AVerMedia_AVerTV_DVB-S_Pro_(A700)

The analog patch works and I hope it can get included into the v4l-dvb repo.

For the other parts:
I suggest to either do one zl1003x driver for zl10036, zl10037, zl10038, 
zl10039, ce5037 and ce5039.

Or do two drivers:
a: for zl10036 and zl10038 (without special register addresses)
b: for zl10037, zl10039, ce5037 and ce5039 (with normal register addresses)

I also suggest to do one driver for vp310, mt312 and zl10313.

Matthias
