Hello list

I'm looking for a dual tuner device for DVB-T reception with USB 2.0 
connectivity. Pinnacle PCTV Dual DVB-T Diversity (PCTV 2000e USB) came to 
my sight. I have learned, that it should work under linux:

   http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Pinnacle_PCTV_Dual_DVB-T_Diversity_%28PCTV_2000e_USB%29

However nowadays, different version called 2001e is saled under the same 
name. (On the official pages there is even newer version showed with dark 
case.)

   http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/uk/Products/Consumer+Products/PCTV+Tuners/PCTV+Digital+PVR+%28DVB-S_DVB-T%29/PCTV+Dual+DVB-T+Diversity+Stick.htm

My question is: Will it work? Does someone have an experience with this 
version?

I have downloaded windows drivers from:

   http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/PCTV%20Drivers/ReadmePCTV.htm

and after looking into it, PCTVDiB.inf states, that it is driver for

* PCTV 2000e
* PCTV 2001e
* PCTV DVB-T Flash Stick

and there is only one driver file mod7700.sys assigned to all three 
versions. Does that mean, that existing driver (after adding new USB 
IDs to the kernel) will work with this stick? Should I buy it and try, or 
am I completly wrong?

Thanks for advice
