Hello Daniel,

Don't use http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb-experimental, that's a very
old repository.

Just loading the modules does nothing.  They won't do anything unless
they know about your hardware.

I would start with the bridge:  CY7C68013A

You need to get the bridge working before you can get any of the
peripherals working (such as the lgdt3304 demod, the 3028 tuner, or
the cx25843 decoder).

Once you have the bridge working, you can set the GPIOs to bring the
other chips out of reset and then do i2c enumeration and device

Do you plan on doing analog support first or digital?
