mod7700.sys is the driver-file created by DiBcom which has support for all 
DiBcom reference designs. If the device is using that, it will most likely 
work with LinuxTV-drivers.

It could be, that the 2001e is compatible with the STK7070PD ref-design. 
Meaning that you "just" need to put the USB-IDs in the right place and it 
should work.

Patrick.
