hi Steve,

i have code for CX24116 DVB-S2 demodulator from very long time. it's
perfectly working, so i can receive DVB-S2 in FreeBSD.

however, it's experimental code full of debug prints and hard-coded
things and i just can't find the spare time to clean it up and make it
suitable for use and finally release it.

so, any PCI or PCI-Express DVB-S2 card with the following components:

- Conexant CX2388x PCI or PCI-Express bridge
- Conexant CX24116 DVB-S2 demodulator
- Conexant CX24118A DVB-S2 tuner

will be supported by cx88 port. i really hope in the next few month to
finally find time to finish it.
