it's SAA7146A-based card and the only FreeBSD driver dealing with
SAA7146A, at least that i'm aware of, is for Skystar1 DVB-S card, more



there are two major hardware designs for DVB-T/-C/-S cards based on
SAA7146A, the so called "full-featured design" and "budget design".

except Skystar1 all other DVB-T/-C/-S cards based on SAA7146A use
"budget design", so Skystar1 is very different than other DVB cards
based on SAA7146A like Cinergy 1200.

however, the parts of the FreeBSD driver for Skystar1 related to
SAA7146A, should be usable for all SAA7146A-based DVB cards, but for
sure without additional code the driver is useless for cards different
than Skystar1.
