I was able to get mine working on a test system, including scanning
for ATSC channels, by following the directions here:

I then set it up as a DVB DTV Capture card (using the device
/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0, not /dev/video0) This was on mythbuntu
9.10 0.22.0+fixes22594-0ubuntu1.

Hopefully there is something here that can help you to get it working.
