Ah, dont worry...  Support for that card is queued up for official 
release in linux kernel 2.6.16 ... In the meantime, you can update your 
v4l/dvb drivers by using our cvs repository.  Instructions located here:


Please keep this in mind:

This cvs repo is current as of a few days ago.  We will no longer be 
updating the sources in v4l-dvb cvs, as we have migrated to the 
Mercurial SCM.


You dont have to use Hg yet, as the code in cvs already has support for 
your card, the Nova-S-Plus, however, I do recommend that if you need any 
updates in the future, to use our new mercurial repository. (Hg for short)

We haven't updates all of the online howto's with instructions, but 
here's a quickie:

First, install mercurial.  Then, you're basically going to want to 
follow all of the directions in the cvs howto, except remove all of 
those cvs command, and use these instead:

To fetch the repo for the first time:

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb

To update the sources later on:

cd v4l-dvb
hg pull

This should help.
