Hi Zsolt, did you see the last message on this topic? we've got all the 
programming specs for the chip! Feel free to have a go at the driver 
yourself, because I'm likely to take a while to get it working.

I've sent info on my device to Gunther, so we'll have a nice gallery of 
the dongle online soon, although mine uses the QT1010 tuner rather than 
mt2060. My initial looks at the programming docs makes it look like the 
AF2016 chip will handle the tuner interface itself, or at least they've 
got sample code of a function that'll take the tuner frequency as a 
parameter to tune to a channel.  I'm going to have a closer look now.
