+Support for the Leadtek WinView 601 TV/FM by Jon Tombs <>
+This card is basically the same as all the rest (Bt484A, Philips tuner),
+the main difference is that they have attached a programmable attenuator to 3
+GPIO lines in order to give some volume control. They have also stuck an
+infra-red remote control decoded on the board, I will add support for this
+when I get time (it simple generates an interrupt for each key press, with
+the key code is placed in the GPIO port).
+I don't yet have any application to test the radio support. The tuner
+frequency setting should work but it is possible that the audio multiplexer
+is wrong. If it doesn't work, send me email.
+- No Thanks to Leadtek they refused to answer any questions about their
+hardware. The driver was written by visual inspection of the card. If you
+use this driver, send an email insult to them, and tell them you won't
+continue buying their hardware unless they support Linux.
+- Little thanks to Princeton Technology Corp (
+who make the audio attenuator. Their publicly available data-sheet available
+on their web site doesn't include the chip programming information! Hidden
+on their server are the full data-sheets, but don't ask how I found it.
+To use the driver I use the following options, the tuner and pll settings might
+be different in your country
+insmod videodev
+insmod i2c scan=1 i2c_debug=0 verbose=0
+insmod tuner type=1 debug=0
+insmod bttv pll=1 radio=1 card=17
