Hello,
again me. I took photos of the device. www.sigari.de/00001.jpg and
www.sigari.de/00003.jpg . I got your megasky repro compiled and changed
the usb ids from the megasky device to mine. if i plug in dmesg says:

dvb-usb: found a 'MSI Mega Sky 580 DVB-T USB2.0' in cold state, will try
to load a firmware
dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'dvb-usb-megasky-02.fw'
dvb_usb_m920x: probe of 1-6:1.0 failed with error 64
usbcore: registered new driver dvb_usb_m920x

ok, well this is my third dvb-t device i hope we can adapt the driver so
it is able to run. i sold the other devices 
due to complete linux incompability. 

so if the photos are not good enough:
the third chip is labled as 8275AC1    P1W85  03  ePG06171 with a
philips logo. 
 the output of lsusb -vvv is:
