Mike, we know Hartmut's fix is correct and do use it on v4l-dvb master.

I have nothing supported on 2.6.24, if you seriously want me to down
port the new cards to 2.6.24.4, I do that, but scratch my head.

Andrew Junew with a TT S-1401 is willing to help, but fairly new to
linux. I try to talk him through a 2.6.24.4 vanilla build, test, then
apply the patch, test again and report.

Cheers,
Hermann
