Ehh, D'OH I guess! I wrote to Siano in April when I bought this adapter,
but never got any reply. I know it was advertised as a mobile linux
chipset, but couldn't find any reference to any actual drivers.
At first try it seems to work in DVB-T mode with my device.
And at first glance it does the same things for DVB-T (only about 8
commands are really needed to function, though it is interesting to know
the real meaning behind all the bits).

Yes, of course. Well, at least it was interesting to reverse engineer
the protocol :-)
Goodluck with the many coding style violations, and please let me know
if you would like me to try or test something.
I will switch to this driver, and if I run into any issues with the
SMS1000 chipset I will send you a patch.
Can you provide a link to the "officially supported" firmware blobs ?
Thanks for your reply,
