So your USB2 box has those USB ids: 04b4:2235, before loading any 
driver/firmware ? Can you please check this again with lsusb ?

Because those IDs are for the USB1.1 controller and not for the USB2.0 
(FX2) chip.

I have the USB2.0 (with FX2) here. And indeed it has the dib3000mb 
onboard and a Panasonic tuner.

I was not able to get it running, something seems to be wrong with the 
tuner-programming. Unfortunately I don't have time to investigate this

Can you create a usbsnoop-dump while the windows driver is in action and 
put it somewhere for download? With this we can see what the i2c-address 
is and other interesting stuff.
