I've got a great news -- Antti has released a driver in his linuxtv
tree at http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/ce6230/ about a week ago!
I've done some quick testing and nearly everything seems to work
great. The only issue I've currently found is that the dvbscan gives
"Unable to query frontend status" error, I'm in touch with Antii
hoping to solve this.
