There is a mostly operation driver that Antti Palosaari has written. 
It's not finished as far as I know but he had it working to the point 
where he could watch tv using it. In it's current state it only works 
with the mt2060 tuner, whereas the dongle I have uses the qt1010 tuner. 
I'm planning on adding support for my tuner when I get a chance. I don't 
think the signal strength reporting and the like are working yet, 
although I'm not sure as I haven't tried it.
I'll let Antti post the driver on the list if he wants, it's not mine to 
share as such. I'm sure he'll chip in soon enough. ;)
