[linux-dvb] Pinnacle PCTV HD Ultimate Stick

I just purchase the PCTV HD Ultimate Stick.  I decided upon this since it supported clear QAM and had flash space for recording to the stick in addition to the hardrive.  I read that the PCTV HD Pro Stick was supported with the latest Experimental build based on the em2883 chipset.  I took the risk and went with the Ultimate instead of the Pro.
   
  I have download the latest DVB Experimental from the Mercurial repository at http://mcentral.de/hg/~mrec/v4l-dvb-experimental
   
  I compiled the drivers and installed them and did the modprobe on em28xx.
   
  The Kernel Ring buffer had the following:
   
  [  191.298763] Linux video capture interface: v2.00
[  191.321285] em28xx v4l2 driver version 0.0.1 loaded
[  191.321874] usbcore: registered new interface driver em28xx
   
   
  I then plugged in the PCTV USB ultimate stick and it found the flash drive and readonly memory on the card used for installing the XP and Vista software (ugh!!!) but never found the actual PCTV USB device.
   
  After plugging in the USB device the following was displayed in the Kernel Ring buffer:

  Any chance that there will be support for this newly released USB stick ?
   
  On Vista, the following information was available from device manager:
   
  Pinnacle PCTV 880e
  Hardware Ids

  Thanks in advance for any replies,
