Hi all,

1st, an update on the ebay tuners:  I got them and sent about half
of them out as samples to folks in the US, Britain, and Australia.
The remaining were sent to TAPR.  They have agreed to handle
further distribution and collection of data.  They only received
them today so further info is not known.  Maybe Steve can provide
an update when possible.

TAPR:  I've taken the liberty of forwarding the below information
to the discuss-gnuradio mailing list as there have been recent
discussions of related issues.

GR: see above...

All:  I made a feeble effort to obtain some info from Microtune
sales, but didn't come up with anything useful and have not
followed it up.  I got a bit more info by creating an account at
Microtune, but nothing specific, and nothing that others probably
do not already have.

Well, I've learned a thing or two since the package arrived.  Perhaps
everyone else already knew about these.

Microtune bought Temic-Telefunken in 2000.  Microtune made chips.  Temic
made tuners.  The 4707s are marked Temic.  However searching for that
instead of Microtune didn't help a lot since it's not a unique name.
However I did happen upon the following docs on a Temic tuner.  Perhaps the
I2C information is useful?


Those appear to be for a tuner only while the 4707 also contains a data
uplink of some sort from what I read.

Funny is shows up on a USB site .... and I couldn't see a tuner used on the
schematic of evaluation board documented there:


Unfortunately searching with either of the two part numbers on the tuner
results in no data sheets, only places that claim to have inventory.
