Hi List,

What is needed to add support for the Compro VideoMate S300/S350 DVB-S 
budget card?

Below is the output of 'lspci -v -nn':

07:00.0 Multimedia controller [0480]: Philips Semiconductors SAA7130 
Video Broadcast Decoder [1131:7130] (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Compro Technology, Inc. Unknown device [185b:c900]
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 66
        Memory at 51104800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1K]
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 1

The card is uses the Philips SAA7130 PCI bridge with a ZL10313
demodulator/frontend chip, which the DVB wiki says is closely related to 
the mt312 demodulator.

It is not clear to me how to specify the mt312 tuner, and 'modprobe
saa7134-dvb' fails with 'saa7130[0]: frontend initialization failed' 
when loading the wrong (mt532) frontend dependency.

The eeprom output is reported as follows:

saa7130[0]: i2c eeprom 00: 5b 18 00 c9 54 20 1c 00 43 43 a9 1c 55 d2 b2 92

saa7130[0]: i2c eeprom 70: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff

Any help would be much appreciated
