I have to disappoint you there. Your knowledge of "that kind of DVB 
devices" is not correct.

Indeed the dual card is based on the dib0700 USB bridge. This USB chipset 
has 2 independent streaming inputs. As this chipset is USB2.0 (up to 440 
Mbit/s measured, 480 in theory) it can deliver two complete TSs at the 
same time.
