Andrew,

PEAK DVB-T Dual tuner PCI (221544AGPK) is either renamed or rebadged KWorld
DVB-T PC160 card.

I'm using first tuner on this card with help of the driver from following
source tree (snapshot was taken around 20/05/2008):
http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/af9015-mxl500x-copy-fw/
and latest firmware from
http://www.otit.fi/~crope/v4l-dvb/af9015/af9015_firmware_cutter/firmware_files/

Small modification for sources (file af9015.c) was needed (just add one more
USB Device ID (1b80:c160)) and the card is "just work" as a single-tuner
card.

I have not test second tuner due to following issue:

Second tuner identified itself correctly only after really "cold restart"
(power down, wait some time, power up):
May 20 23:39:09 dvbbird kernel: DVB: registering new adapter (KWorld  PC160
(PEAK 221544AGPK) DVB-T PCI dual tuner)

May 20 23:39:10 dvbbird kernel: dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2
transportstream to the software demuxer.

May 20 23:39:11 dvbbird kernel: TDA18271HD/C1 detected @ 4-00c0

For any sort of "not-really-cold" restarts second tuner fails to respond
correctly:

Hope this help.
Sergej.
