I finally get your driver working very well with my usb-tdt-stick.
So you can add to the HW-supported list the BestBuy Easy TV USB Stick 
(AF9015 + MT2061).
If someone is interested, I am running it on an 2.6.9 kernel (minimal 
changes are to be added to compile v4l with these drivers).
Now I am trying to embed these drivers on a ARM7 at 300MHz based system, 
without success yet. It seems that performance has something to do in 
this reduced environment (not actually sure). If someone is interested 
or has experience in this task, suggestions are welcome.
Please continue reporting new releases for the drivers (I will). Thank 
you very much Antti and Manu.
