[mythtv-users] Help with getting a Yuan MPC788 MiniPCI DVB tuner to work with MythTV!

I am trying to build a MythTV box for the mother in law, using her old Acer
Aspire L3600 mini PC, which handily comes with a built in Yuan MPC788 mini PCI
DVB tuner. The only problem is, it doesn't seem to want to work. I have
installed Mythbuntu on the machine (which works fine) and everything is going
smoothly until I try to configure the DVB card. Nothing seems to work, and I did
start to wonder if the card was actually working, but I dual booted back into
Vista, set up the Windows Media Centre and managed to get the card showing live
TV, so it does work.

Does anyone have any ideas/solutions for how to get this working for her, as the
only alternative I can think of is buying a USB tuner, which seems a shame when
there is one already inside. I found some information about downloading the
Windows firmware/driver and then running a perl script to extract the firmware
so that Linux could handle it, but still, nothing works.

Any help much appreciated.
