Making it work
You will need the dvb-usb-dib0700-1.10.fw firmware file in /lib/firmware or the relevant place for your distribution.
For devices with box number 293 and device number 70009 the kernel may require firmware version dvb-usb-dib0700-01.fw. Rename the firmware linked above or put a link. Seems to work fine.

Remote control support
Supported in v4l-dvb as of 18 August 2007. The 70001 version has an IR sensor, and the 70009 version is listed by Wikipedia as having one. It works with Hauppauge's 45-button remote control and will handle signals from similar remote controls.
If you have problems with a flood of "unknown key" messages in the kernel log, you'll also need this patch (it is not cleanly applicable to recent trees, but it is an easy one-liner to do by hand).
