OK, so I've done a bit more research, and having taken the thing apart, I 
now know that the two ICs in there are

MT352 - Which has been seen in many a DVB-T USB tuner
QT1010 - Which is a silicon tuner.

I'm assuming that this means that since the MT352 has already got drivers 
working for it we could just use those? In which case could someone mention 
how to add the USB VID & PID codes to the correct module (which I assume 
would be the dtt200u.ko)?
