Can you explain that? What does it do?
Use the hardware CAM module? What's the advantage over using the 
firmware for that?
Soft-CAM? Which encryption methods are supported? Is it legal for you 
(not EU) to offer that publically? (Compare DeCSS case, which was 
Norway.) If so, that would be great.

(Or you could just wait with the explanation until you're done.)

V4L support in howfar? What does the /dev/video device output? What 
happens, if I try to tune like I do analog tuner devices?
