Ahhh, Sorry for the mis-attribution Mike. Many thanks for a piece of the 
jigsaw :)

There is a saa7130 on board which is probably what is allowing me to 
view the composite input and I have had static from the Television input 
when using a few of the different card options (however Ive no idea how 
to tune an analogue card, I'll have to look that up) so it may be 
possible to get the entire analogue shebang working (though I'm not 
hopeful).

The lack of TDA10048 support is disappointing but rather expected. I 
notice there is support for the 10045/6 (tda1004x) and I had a quick 
look at the source but it looked a little less trivial than adding an 
extra #define sadly :(

So is my only way forward watching this list for someone to start 
working on support for this?

Lee
