Including dtvsignal?

The very latest stuff from Gerd? Axel has a 2.6.7 kernel patched with the very 
latest v4l2 stuff, and I couldn't get the pcHDTV patches to apply cleanly on 
top of them, due to several changes... I briefly looked at what it would take 
to manually patch them in, but it was all over my head. Too many differences, 
I didn't want to break something.

I'd definitely like to see that. Also, if really do have the very latest v4l2 
stuff and pcHDTV stuff playing nice together, I'd be very interested in 
looking at some patches...

Crap like taking time tinkering with my pcHDTV card keeps detracting from my 
guide update time... But I want to put this $600 investment to use now!
