That means it might work under USB 1.1, because it only passes on packets
with the right PIDs meaning that the bandwidth required will probably fit
into USB 1.1.

This may not be the current Freecom DVB-T USB Stick though. I bought one
in April 2006, and mine uses the ZL0353 chip which I believe is a later
revision than the one you are considering. This only works on USB 2.0
unless I apply a kernel patch (which I posted to this list some time ago)
because one of the data channels is isoc under USB 1.1 and bulk under
USB 2.0.
