No.  Follow his instructions exactly as they are WITHOUT recompiling 
your kernel... You shouldnt need to do that, provided that video4linux 
and dvb-core are compiled as modules.

about applying the patch, do "man patch" (for future reference)

after you do "scripts/merge-trees.sh", do:

patch -p0 < compro_t200_remote.patch

Depending on the time that you get this email, the patch may or may not 
already be applied to cvs.  I took a copy of the patch, and didnt have a 
chance to look at it yet.  I will apply it to cvs if all is well with it.
