The SAA716x driver is supposed to support the following PCIe chips


The SAA716x development repository is at http://jusst.de/hg/saa716x
It is quite a work in progress, as of now. There are also some DVB-S2
cards based on the SAA7160.

Also, the SAA7164 chip is not supported by the SAA716x driver as it is a
completely different chip altogether.
