Ok, I have received my card now and plugged it in.
As Henrik says, there appear to be two similar cards, the "diversity"
model having a pair of aerial inputs rather than just one. Mine is the
diversity model, though it ships in what appears to be a non-diversity
box (the picture on the box doesn't match the contents) with an extra
sticker on to say it's the new model. On the card it's actually
The single-aerial card appears to be supported in kernels 2.6.19 up,
or by building the latest v4l as documented here:
I'm using a CentOS5 box which only has the 2.6.18 kernel and the latest
v4l drivers won't build against it. The most recent build that will
compile (v4l-dvb-65ebaec0d70a) has the dvb_usb_dib0700 module, but that
doesn't appear to find my card. I may well be building a later kernel
from scratch this evening unless I decide to bite the bullet and install
I don't know what the PCI IDs of the pre-diversity cards are, but I'd
assume they're different. Mine is 0070:6800 and as that's the same as
yours I'd suggest we're in the same boat.
