Hi Konstantin

I emailed you a little while back about this - good to know you hope
to have the time to complete it at some point!

I have a cx88 based DVB-S card (recognised by cx88), with a cx24123
demod/tuner. I'd be interested to see your driver, as I'm struggling
to work out what bits of the linux driver I should be looking at!
