How did you get it to work? Hotplug/UDEV did not recognize it until I found
some v4l2 drivers that implement the dvb mode plus specific firmware. The
NTSC (USA-cable) image was a mess and the autoscan for channels in mythtv
didn't work either. I just gave up after that.
I'd like to know if you did something different. I'm on Debian Etch, with
an Intel graphics chip that creates some v4l2 issues.
