Let's try this to rule out whether it's the new i2c interface or some
other aspect of the 1.20 firmware:

Add the following line to the dib0700_devices.c at line 78:

st->fw_use_legacy_i2c_api = 1;

It should end up looking like:

static int bristol_frontend_attach(struct dvb_usb_adapter *adap)
        struct dib0700_state *st = adap->dev->priv;

	st->fw_use_legacy_i2c_api = 1;

        if (adap->id == 0) {

That will tell it to fall back to the legacy i2c interface (which was
working fine for you in the 1.10 firmware).

Make that change, reboot your system, and send me the dmesg output so
we can see if you still get i2c errors.
