My inbox has accumulated numerous emails from various people asking 
about DVB support for DViCO FusionHDTV5 Lite.  I'll eventually get to 
respond to everyone, but hopefully this email will cover most of those 

Please be advised that the only way to enable support for this board at 
this time is by using the v4l / dvb tree-merging scripts...


The build method outlined in the link above will work on 2.6.12 <= 
kernels <= 2.6.13.  CVS is currently NOT compatable with the post-2.6.13 
i2c changes.  If you wish to report any bugs or make any comments, 
please be sure to CC the linux-dvb mailing list, and not *only* me. ;-)

I'm kind of in a rush right now, but I wanted to make this 
announcement.  In the interest of time, I am pasting my commit message 
here... Comments are welcome.

Log message:
Added support for DViCO FusionHDTV5 Lite.

This is the first card to use dvb-pll in dvb-bt8xx. IMHO,
it would be a good idea to convert the other tuners in
this manner, after some testing, of course.

This is exactly the same as the patch that I previously
posted to the linux-dvb list, using the same DT3303 serial mode
TS transfer setting as cx88-based FusionHDTV5 Gold.  The
only difference from my previous patch is gpio_mode. Thank you
Doug Stevens, for pointing out the correct gpio value.
