USB_VID_GTEK + USB_PID_GTEK_WARM to leadtek`s 0413:6a03)
is tuner working!  (me-tv + kaffeine)

Good. Supported tuner chip. Pls do extensive tests (multiple recording streams, long time use usb-disconnects, other dvb apps...) and report any issues.

But we must support the MSI and others, too, so introduce an USB-ids array and device detection for USB_VID_GTEK + USB_PID_GTEK_WARM, see the other drivers for example code.

I don't have got the devices.

Installation of Realtek rtl2832u-based DVB-T-USB-Sticks:

gedit ./linux/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-usb/Makefile

Not acceptable in linux software development, pls *attach* patch to a mail with [PATCH]... in subject line by using linux diff utility (man diff) Example:
diff -rNU3 <orig code dir> <changed code dir> > ubuntuusers-de-rtl2832u-01.patch

Can you remove the VERY OLD branch:
It is giving some confusion here.

Thomas & Jan:

I've got the RTL2831 code (mind the last digit) vetted off by LeadTek.
For the rtl2832, I haven't had contact with them.

Certainly, Jan could try any of the three archives.
I know Antti has thoughts on the rtl2832, I'm sure he knows more.

Should Jan Slaninka try it?
If you have more information on the RTL2832, I'd be happy to add it at:
Nothing on the Realtek website yet.
