Zhang, these register values didn't help, which means that we're 
probably missing minor configuration parameters on the s5h1409 demod 
when running in parallel mode.

That being said I switch the pinnacle 800i configuration in cx88 to 
switch to use serial mode, also patch a couple of registers, now it's 
streaming digital transport (QAM was tested) correctly. ATSC should also 
work just as well.

Please confirm this is true.

Also, I added support for IR but this remains completely untested. If 
someone can plug in an IR receiver and press a few buttons then the 
driver should be processing them correctly - much like we do for the 
Hauppauge HVR3000 products (IE. It's a native feature of the cx2388x 

Again, someone please confirm that IR is working before I prepare the 
final patches for Mauro.
