Other then the fact that they are both DVB cards, the ATSC 110 and 120
are completely dissimilar, so no extension of support possibility
there....It is unfortunate that you learnt that fact the hard way ....
though, (and you probably don't need to hear this after the fact), the
resources to tell you otherwise do exist:

This card's support is contingent upon (i) xc3028 tuner support and (ii)
glue code in the drivers to tie all the components together; so as to
provide device level support.

The situation surrounding support for the Xceive devices is nothing
short of comical; what should have been easily handled ages ago has been
ridiculously fanned and blown into an ongoing "crisis". I do, however,
have faith that this situation may resolve itself, one way or another,
in the coming months. But until that time, you and other ATSC 120 users
(and there are others, as a couple of inquiries about this device and,
its Geniatech X8000A analogue, have been made) are out of luck.
