It is supported under Linux since kernel 2.6.12rc3.
These devices are clones of a DVB-T USB2.0 reference design made by DiBcom. There are actually a couple of different variants of the device, but all should be supported.
- the older variant has a USB ID of: 9300 & 9301 (for cold and warm state)
It has a MAC address.
Making it Work
It requires the firmware file dvb-usb-nova-t-usb2-01.fw
The following drivers are needed for these devices:
- dib3000-common.ko - dib3000mc.ko - dvb-usb.ko - dvb-usb-dibusb-common.ko - dvb-usb-nova-t-usb2.ko
The remote control is partially supported by current Linux kernels together with the abovementioned firmware and drivers. Supported are the following keys:
- numbers 0 through 9, asterisk, (#)
- arrow keys
- volume up, down
- play, record, rewind, forward, pause, (stop)
The other keys deliver scancodes above 255, which are not recognized by X11. For a solution, refer to: 
Do not try some other solution like LIRC, this one works easiest.
