2	Support for the Leadtek WinView 601 TV/FM by Jon Tombs <jon@gte.esi.us.es>

4	This card is basically the same as all the rest (Bt484A, Philips tuner),
5	the main difference is that they have attached a programmable attenuator to 3
6	GPIO lines in order to give some volume control. They have also stuck an
7	infra-red remote control decoded on the board, I will add support for this
8	when I get time (it simple generates an interrupt for each key press, with
9	the key code is placed in the GPIO port).
10	
11	I don't yet have any application to test the radio support. The tuner
12	frequency setting should work but it is possible that the audio multiplexer
13	is wrong. If it doesn't work, send me email.

16	- No Thanks to Leadtek they refused to answer any questions about their
17	hardware. The driver was written by visual inspection of the card. If you
18	use this driver, send an email insult to them, and tell them you won't
19	continue buying their hardware unless they support Linux.

21	- Little thanks to Princeton Technology Corp (http://www.princeton.com.tw)
22	who make the audio attenuator. Their publicly available data-sheet available
23	on their web site doesn't include the chip programming information! Hidden
24	on their server are the full data-sheets, but don't ask how I found it.
25	
26	To use the driver I use the following options, the tuner and pll settings might
27	be different in your country
