Hello,

to my mind your card _should_ work. 
I'm using a DVB-S Hybrid+FM A700 card with zzam's driver since version 
20080204 without any problems on vanilla kernels 2.6.* and Gentoo-patched 
kernels. So I'm able to watch freeTV and listen to DVB-S-radio (Astra). 

Did you ever thought of building your own, fresh vanilla-kernel from the 
sources?

Regards
Peter
