Looks to be a clone of the Azurewave/Twinhan AD-CP400 (VP-2040)

- NXP/Philips TDA10023 (demodulator)
- Mantis (bridge)

Making it Work
No firmware required.
Installing the driver
Kernel 2.6.28 released on 24.12.2008 works with the mantis driver in the s2-liplianin repository.
The mantis-multiproto driver has been tested with Ubuntu Hardy (2.6.24?) on the 28.11.2008. CAM/CI is not working with current mantis for me. I have a crash when scanning or zapping with the CAM inserted. Take the CAM module out if you have one for the moment! (Is this also true for the new driver??)
Install mantis driver
Recommended: install the latest mantis drivers like this.
sudo apt-get install mercurial hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/s2-liplianin cd s2-liplianin make sudo make install sudo reboot
Old mantis-multiproto repository intstructions. May not compile with latest kernels.
cd /usr/src sudo apt-get install mercurial sudo hg clone http://jusst.de/hg/mantis cd mantis sudo make sudo make install sudo reboot

Remote Control Support
For the old driver (Manu's) RC works after applying the following patch. See 
NOTE: I wonder why this patch has not been merged into the trunk. Does it break anything?
Regarding the new driver. I have managed to fix Borodulin's patch and it is working in my box (Ubuntu 8.10 with 18.104.22.168). You can download it from here: . I tested successfully the patch against 21af81d9fb02. I also contacted Igor and Manu asking whether they could add the patch in their projects but no answer so far.
CI/CAM support for the optional CI module is not working yet (12.12.2013)
Working around i2c bus probing interference with ivtv
If the mantis module won't load (hangs) with the error message
mantis_ack_wait (0): Slave RACK Fail !
you should check []
