Bug Description

This bug report is created to formally track the following request:

Please merge the following patch into LUM:

http://linuxtv.org/~mkrufky/lum/add-hvr950q-to-lum.patch

I could not include it in this email due to its size.

The xc5000 driver requires a firmware image. Firmware extraction
instructions are located at:

http://steventoth.net/linux/xc5000/

The details of having Ubuntu ship this firmware is a work in progress.

These new modules are added in upstream 2.6.26, but there are new USB id's that likely wont be merged until 2.6.27:

2040:721f = Dell Digital TV Receiver
2040:7280 = Dell Digital TV Receiver

SRU justification:

Impact: Certain DVB boards are not supported in Hardy.

Fix: Driver will be added to LUM as additional driver modules. The IDs
are unique. No degredation should be expected.

Testcase: Without the new modules the following cards will not work:

        { USB_DEVICE(0x2040, 0x7200),
                .driver_info = AU0828_BOARD_HAUPPAUGE_HVR950Q },
        { USB_DEVICE(0x2040, 0x7240),
                .driver_info = AU0828_BOARD_HAUPPAUGE_HVR850 },
        { USB_DEVICE(0x2040, 0x7210),
                .driver_info = AU0828_BOARD_HAUPPAUGE_HVR950Q },
        { USB_DEVICE(0x2040, 0x7217),
                .driver_info = AU0828_BOARD_HAUPPAUGE_HVR950Q },
        { USB_DEVICE(0x2040, 0x721b),
                .driver_info = AU0828_BOARD_HAUPPAUGE_HVR950Q },
        { USB_DEVICE(0x0fd9, 0x0008),
                .driver_info = AU0828_BOARD_HAUPPAUGE_HVR950Q },
        { USB_DEVICE(0x2040, 0x721f),
                .driver_info = AU0828_BOARD_DELL_HVR950Q },
        { USB_DEVICE(0x2040, 0x7280),
                .driver_info = AU0828_BOARD_DELL_HVR950Q },

I can confirm that this device works properly using the 2.6.24-20 kernel in hardy-proposed.
