Hi all,

as far as I am able to understand the existing code, there should be a kund of 
tuner interface for the tuner driver. (I'm on work, I don't have the code 
here...there were methods like get...TunerInterface)

I think we need to write such a method for any (partly) existing driver - am I 
right?
