I have a working, open source, Mac OS X driver for th digital part this
card (two different revisions of it actually). Quite a few people are
using it for ATSC, and it includes code for tuning to a QAM signal,
although that part is untested, since no-one has asked me about it yet.

It would not be difficult to make a linux driver with the info contained
in my driver. (CVS root nr end of this page: <http://www.defyne.org/dvb/>)

I have some information about the demod, but unfortunately I can't pass it
on directly. I'd be happy to try to answer any questions and/or help out
with bits of code 'tho.
