[linux-dvb] DMB-H USB Sticks: MagicPro ProHDTV Mini 2 USB

Hi,

frustrated that I couldn't watch the Chinese New Years' Fireworks using
my RTL2832U based DVB-T stick in Hong Kong, I just bought a

MagicPro ProHDTV Mini 2 USB stick. Given that HK is now part of China
(somehow), they decided to follow the mainland DTV standard, so it's
DTMB (DMB-T/H) over here.

The package says it only supports Windows, but I never believe the
packaging :)

lsusb -v says:

Bus 001 Device 008: ID 1b80:d39f Afatech

This looks *very* similar to the RTL2832U, in fact dmesg says it's a
Realtek chip:

[58773.739843] usb 1-1.1: new high-speed USB device number 8 using ehci_hcd
[58773.835657] usb 1-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=1b80,
idProduct=d39f
[58773.835665] usb 1-1.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2,
SerialNumber=0
[58773.835670] usb 1-1.1: Product: usbtv
[58773.835673] usb 1-1.1: Manufacturer: realtek

Full lsusb -v output is attached.

I checked here but it's not listed, but other (PCIe) devices from the
same manufacturer are:

I'm more than willing to get this thing supported under Linux - just let
me know what I can do to help.

I have

a) the stick
b) the Windows driver/software CD (soon as an ISO)

What I can provide is

a) help getting more info on the hardware (taking it apart etc.)
b) provide remote access to a box with the stick plugged in if necessary
c) test new code / patches

Cheers

Alex
