Thank you, Markus...  but please don't top-post.

Anyway, You're right, 17de:08a6 IS supported for autodetection, and is inside
cx88-cards.c ...  The strange thing is, Sid's original post had the subsystem
17de:08a4 ( http://linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2007-May/018339.html ) ...
Why did the subsystem ID change between posts?

Sid, is this the same card used in both instances, or is it a different card?
