Re a working DVB-T2 usb device.  I'm running a PCTV nanoStick T2 290e
usb device.  The driver is available and I've got it working with HD TV
(I have to qualify this by saying I can receive and decode HD TV but my
non-ION Atom 510 processor is not powerful enough to display it in
real-time.  However, the developers and others have been able to do so).

The driver development web site is here
<http://stevekerrison.com/290e/>.  It's also available as part of the
standard build from Linux TV from here
<http://git.linuxtv.org/media_build.git>. I built my driver using these
instructions, the process was completely painless.  It maybe that by now
the 2820r driver has been included as standard in the latest kernels.
