Hi Mika,

you should also ask the guys in the linuxtv mailing list
(linux-dvb at linuxtv.org) !

this is what I know from www.vdrportal.de:

-the card (also known as Nexus-CA) works :-)

-sound via the analog output is only possible with patched drivers. There
exists an older "quick-and-dirty"-patch, but this patch doesn`t work with
the current dvb-kernel CVS. I compiled a kernel 2.6.14 with this patched
driver for LinVDR, and the tester said it works ! You can find the patch at

-sound via the digital output works since one or two weeks with the current
dvb-kernel drivers.

To get both working (analog + digital sound with the same driver) there are
two possibilities:

-find somebody who is able to modify the "dirty" analog-patch so that it
works with the current dvb-kernel
-wait until a "clean" solution for analog audio is found, so that it can be
integrated officially in the dvb-kernel CVS

Hope this helps you!
