I think you may need post-2.6.14 drivers.

A few weeks back I tested friend's HD-5000 in my box and it would not 
work with vanilla 2.6.14. However I had no problem at all with the same 
kernel and dvb-kernel drivers from CVS as of 11/24. Just compiled and 
installed the drivers and "modprobe b2c2-flexcop-pci", nothing more. You 
don't need to compile the kernel itself. The card worked great, both OTA 
and QAM. Too bad it wasn't mine :-)
