Ok, here I'm probably pushing my luck but... what are the chances of getting 
remote control support under linux really? I tried with the instructions on 
the v4l wiki 
(http://www.linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/Remote_controllers#How_to_add_remote_control_support_to_a_card_.28GPIO_remotes.29) 
and added it to saa7134-cards and -input but it didn't show any reactions to 
me frantically pressing the keys of my remote

btw thanks again for getting the dvb support working. after a week or so I 
think it's way more stable (meaning it hasn't crashed ever) than the 
avermedia software and reception seems better too (found some new channels).
