I just finished support for the Pro and Non-Pro versions a couple of
weeks ago, but judging by the different form factor, I would suspect
this is a different hardware design.

The most useful thing you could do would be to pop the device open and
take digital photos of the PCBs, and create a page on the LInuxTV DVB
Wiki for the device.

Once we know what components it contains, that will give us some idea
how much work will be required.

Regards,

Devin
