The drivers were done in May (with the older versions of v4l and DVB). 
As soon as we get the OK from Conexant I'll publish what I have 
immediately, even if they need some rework for the later kernels/v4l. 
Diseqc hasn't been implemented in the current version, but the hardware 
interface is well defined and we should have no problem doing that.

I also backported the stuff to 2.4 if anyone is interested, with a 
standalone PCI bridge module. We had an internal project request for that.

Once we have a green light I'll port a URL for the source and datasheets 

Stay tuned.
