I thought the MT352 is a demodulator...  isn't the tuner a separate entity??  
For example my cards both use a MT352 demod and they also both have a Thomson 
7579 tuner.... so it may be that your devices both had the MT352 but 
different tuners... here's what I discovered on the wiki


incidentally, was the misbehaving USB stick one of the ones listed between 
33-42 in the following list??
