What are you saying, that this is completely the wrong driver and
mailing list? It is indeed the "V-Stream XPERT DTV - DVB-T" but that is
clearly mentioned in the wiki as being supported - or at least the
USB1.1 version of it is, I'm not so sure about the USB2.0 version. Or
do you mean that this is the right driver and mailing list but I'm
trying to use it incorrectly in MythTV? How would I use it instead? I
haven't seen any video4linux nodes pop up in /dev.

Rather confused,
