I'm not really interested (or able) to rewrite bktr to that extent, but it 
would be nice if only PCTV Rave cards were actually recognised as PCTV Rave 
cards. I've cc'd the author of the patch with this mail - Arne, can you 
perhaps try and narrow down the PCI IDs for the PCTV Rave cards somewhat? At 
present, it catches all Pinnacle brooktree devices which come with Pinnacle's 
"new" vendor id and that generates quite a lot of false positives.
