Hi again - sorry it took so long to come back into this, it took a lot
longer than I expected to get my base system fully working with ZFS et al!

As you thought Jason, the kernel side interfaces of the card were properly
recognised by cx88 port. I've attached verbose dmesg at the end (although
there are no problems - it has attached just fine.)

Konstantin: is there any code for DVB-S tuning/capturing I could look at to
attempt to port this card?
