I've been using this driver for more 5 months, around 1 hour per day with Kaffeine.
Kaffeine did hang now and then but I never had any kernel oops, I don't think I had to replug the device... so, there are good signs, but no guarantee.

The two frontends are available but the diversity stuff is not yet handled, I hope I'll have some time next month. The signal quality is as such not better than other devices.

This driver works with :
- Pinnacle Dual DVB-T diversity
- Terratec Cinergy DT USB XS diversity ( as reported by Tim Köhler )
- Hauppauge Nova TD USB ( as reported by Janne Grunau )

If anyone has one of these devices :
- Emtec S830 Diversity (there is a DibCom logo on the box :-)
- Techgear diversity TV Stick

... [s]he should give it a try as well (with the correct USB ID values...)

Just my 2 euro-cents.
