I've had a Hauppauge DEC T 2000 (dvb terrestrial) which worked on USB
1.1 and I did not have any problem with the bandwidth.

I think it would be very unlikely that the board compresses the MPEG2
stream before sending it to the PC.
It is more likely some settings are wrong.

Maybe you could do something like


sniff the windows USB stream and then compare it to what happens in linux.
With some help from the guys in linuxtv.org, it could be possible to
see if some settings are missing.
