Yes, non of the hybrid devices I have worked on have support for analogue,
only dvb. I think the place to look is on video4linux mailing list. If you
want to get support for your card on the kernel (the dvb part) first would
be nice to be sure it works, and then just submit the patch to the linux-dvb
mailing list. I think it should be generated with some options and once it's
generated you should pass the perl script on v4l/scripts/checkpatch.pl to be
sure it follows the programming conventions... Just for curiosity, it worked
just as I send the code or you had to change some things? If you send me
back the files I can generate the patch for you, but again it should be
great to check it really works (you didn't get signal from any spanish
dvb?).
