DVB-T Dual Express is not yet supported.
Some people have been emailing me privately about this -- too many people for me to respond to... Hopefully they'll see this message.
There is a new xceive driver in the master branch, but it's lacking a dvb entry point at this time... Once that's done, it will pave the way for cx23885 + xc3028 device support. After support for the Hauppauge HVR1500 (atsc only) is added, it will be easier to add support for other cx23885 + xc3028 devices, such as the DViCO DVB-T Dual Express.
A while back, I was sending out test patches that used the xc3028-fe module, from the infamous xc-bluebird.patch ... I am no longer going to bother with this method, since there finally is an xceive driver in the master development branch.
Once the xceive dvb entry point is ready, I (or Chris) will re-spin the Dual Digital 4 / DVB-T Nano2 support to use the new tuner module.
Things are moving along...
