Hello, I got the device, I try it on my laptop and it load well the
firmware and it creates 2 DVB devices on /dev/dvb/ with Debian
Squeeze. I don't try to watch TV. But I have problems on my Nvidia ION
(where is MythTV):

I add some info on the LinuxTV wiki:

I will try to upgrade my kernel and try Mythbuntu.

Hope this help.
