I recently reverse-engineered a Mac driver for this box. Based on snooping
the usb traffic from the Windows driver - it was actually pretty easy (or
maybe I've spent too much time looking at MT352 registers :). Anyway it
would not be hard to write a Linux driver from the source to my driver.
Which is available from the CVS on my web site as usual.

Yes, my sources at DVICO have dried up too. Thus the reverse engineering.

I suspect it will fit very nicely into your dvb-usb framework :)
