Hi!

I plan to buy a DVB-C card. I think I found a good one: DigitalRise DVB-C PCI 
Cable CI (2033). On the manufacture's homepage, I found an open source linux 
driver that seems to be related to the linux-dvb projekt, but contains an 
additional driver for the mantis chip, that is built into that tv card. I 
searched the linux kernel, the linux-dvb-1.1.1 release and the cvs source for 
the mantis files, but I did not find them. so my question is, if the driver 
from 
http://www.digitalrise.biz/support/downloads/index.php?action=file&id=187 
will ever be part of the vanilla kernel/dvb-source. additionally this driver 
does not support the CI module but there is evidance in the sourcecode that 
it may be supported. a mysterious "mantis_ca.h" will be included if 
HAVE_MANTIS_CI is defined. the next question is, if the CI module will ever 
be fully supported. :-)
and my last three questions are: does anyone use this card (or at least the 
mantis chip)? how is the quality and compatibility with e.g. mplayer and this 
card? I have read about H.264 support on this card on a shop's homepage, but 
the manufacture's homepage does not mention H264 support. Does this card have 
H.264 support?

thx for reading
Björn
