Here is Afatech's (Taiwan) newest driver for the AF901x DVB-T tuners. It is
available for download from the Digittrade web site:

http://www.digittrade.de/shop/info/stick_treiber/linux/Linux_MT2060_2.6.20.tar

Digittrade, who sells DVB-T sticks with the Afatech MT2060 and AF9016
chipset, wants to support the Linux community and has released the
driver under GPL. The driver contains among Afatech code some linuxtv
code modules. It builds and works fine. Only there might be conflicts
if some dvb modules are already loaded because of other sticks.

The built modules from the driver above can be loaded as follows:
# insmod dvb-pll.ko
# insmod dvb-core.ko
# insmod dvb-usb.ko
# insmod dvb-af901x.ko

RPM packages (OpenSUSE) have been prepared by 'Rain_maker' and can be
found here:
