Overview/Features

An hybrid Analog/DVB-T PCI card from Leadtek. There are 2 types of Leadtek DTV1800H, the older rev (107d:6654) with Xceive xc3028 tuner and the later rev (107d:6f38) with Xceive xc4000.

Card Features

Formats:

   * DVB-T
   * NTSC/PAL from RF/Composite/S-Video inputs.
   * FM radio

Inputs:

   * RF
   * Composite
   * Infrared 

Currently the xc4000 version of this card is only supported by applying the patch available at http://istvanv.users.sourceforge.net/v4l/xc4000.html (has been tested and found to work in Australia using Kaffeine/KDE4).

The IR support appears to work but the default key code mappings for the IR control are incorrect. HD audio can be intermittent at times; not sure what is causing this. SD DVB functionality works fine.

Update 2010-08-14 - the patchset above has been modified to apply directly to the 2.6.35 kernel tree but this updated patch is not yet publicly available. Watch this space...
