Sorry, but it is not that easy to create support for a new - unknown - 
device ;)

If this device is really compatible with the other (Wideview-based) 
products, the programming of the demod is most likely hidden in the 
firmware. Which makes it easier to get the device supported - but the way 
is different.

To figure out, if this is correct or not, please try to capture some 
usblogs with http://benoit.papillault.free.fr/usbsnoop/ . And make them 
public somewhere.
