I have a Compro T750 - DVB doesnt work and seems unlikely to be
supported, though V4L analog does work - pity this is a nice card

I have 3 Compro U300 - doesnt work, it is supposed to work with an OS
project driver (cant remember who), but my last communication with the
author ended up with him saying it didnt because he had to still get to
it.  There are google results for both in kernel and this project saying
they work :(

I do need time to have another go at getting them to go.
