Eh? I download that driver from internet, and it shows the 1.1.1 release. 
Maybe the name is wrong, but I think I'm using that version, and the 
usb-drivers are in.

Yes, the board have 2 demods, so you're right.

I have asked DiBcom for help me about the drivers. I have received the answer 
just today (not really DiBcom, a manufacturer of their boards) and they said 
that there is NO drivers for linux for this board. They could send me the 
driver source for Windows (I don't know if this source is public and either I 
can public it for help).

Do you know how complicated is to develop the driver for linux with this 
source (either it could simplify the develop), or from beginning? How could 
it cost? 

Thanks a lot for your time, Patrick.
