Any chance of using using DVB-T frontend on HVR-4000? This card have 2
separate frontends. And as quoted on
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-HVR-4000:

"Multiple frontends are supported: DVB-S/S2 and DVB-T appear as
/dev/dvb/adapterN/frontend0 and /dev/dvb/adapterN/frontend1
respectively.

Due to a hardware limitation, the two frontends cannot be used
simultaneously. However they can be used sequentially within the same
application. The driver handles the mutual exclusion appropriately."
