Ok, installing the driver of this chip wasn't that easy but following 
several "finnish"-howtos i managed to succesfully build v4l-dvb driver 
for the rtl2832u-chiped MSI Digivox mini II V3.0.

lsusb:
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1d19:1101

dmesg (regarded on stick-plugin):

scan /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/de-Nordrhein-Westfalen delivers all channels 
that i know off.
example output:

 >>> tune to: 
538000000:INVERSION_AUTO:BANDWIDTH_8_MHZ:FEC_2_3:FEC_AUTO:QAM_16:TRANSMISSION_MODE_8K:GUARD_INTERVAL_1_4:HIERARCHY_NONE
0x0000 0x4015: pmt_pid 0x0150 RTL World -- RTL Television (running)
0x0000 0x4016: pmt_pid 0x0160 RTL World -- RTL2 (running)
0x0000 0x401b: pmt_pid 0x01b0 RTL World -- Super RTL (running)
0x0000 0x4022: pmt_pid 0x0220 RTL World -- VOX (running)

kaffeine scans all channels properly too and i can watch everything 
probably if i tune my antenna up to 18db, but kaffeine is kde based and 
i would like to have gnome/gtk based me-tv.

Me-TV cannot find ANY channels (0) when i use internal scan:
example output:

08.11.2009 15:15:43: Tuning to transponder at 538000000 Hz
08.11.2009 15:15:43: Auf Signalsperre warten … (translation: waiting for 
signal lock)
08.11.2009 15:15:55: Poking screensaver
08.11.2009 15:15:58: Status: 0
08.11.2009 15:15:58: Currently tuned to freq 538000000, symbol rate 0, 
inner fec 2
08.11.2009 15:15:58: Exception: Sperren des Kanals fehlgeschlagen 
(translation: failed to lock channel)
08.11.2009 15:15:58: Failed to tune to transponder at 538000000 Hz

So i tried to import the channels.conf-output that i generated with scan.
Me-Tv seems to work, adds all channels, but stucks heavily and cannot 
show tv properly due to weak signal...

The signal truely is high enough, because even increasing to 40db keeps 
signal on 0%, so something must be wrong.

To shoot out errors i got the same stick with afatech-9015-chip, that 
100% works nice with me-tv.

So the Rtl2832U nearly works with any application except of me-tv.

i really like me-tv and kaffeine is crashing all the time. Any ideas on 
how to fix that?
