I think my card is the one that is listed as "Work-In-Progress" in linuxtv.org dvb usb and apparently there are mac drivers for it, so some info might be available through that. Otherwise I'll open it up and have a look inside the box if it'll help.

Great!  I just posted a patch that you can test... I will attach it to 
this email for your convenience...

Please follow these instructions:


...but STOP AT STEP 5 ..... Before running make, apply the patch that 
I've attached to this email:

cd v4l-dvb
patch -p0 < ../fusionhdtvusb-dvbt.patch

...then continue on with the steps in the wiki-howto (make && make 
install) etc.....

You will also need to download the bluebird firmware and copy it into 
/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware or /lib/firmware ,  depending on your distro.

To download the firmware, run "linux/Documentation/dvb/get_dvb_firmware 

When it's all working, or even if it doesn't work, please tell me if the 
LED lights on the device light up, show me your dmesg, and send me again 
the output from lsusb.  (lsusb output should change after successfull 
firmware load)

Thank you for the help in testing this -- I cannot add it to cvs until I 
know for sure that it is working.

Cheers, and happy testing!
