FYI, I just received the DViCO FusionHDTV5 USB Gold today along with a 
proper antenna.  I'm trying to get DViCO to cough up the 
documentation right now.  Basically it seems that you need to 
download the bluebird firmware to the device, which will cause the 
device to initialize and expose the ugen endpoint(s).  Hopefully I 
can get the docs.  After that it should be pretty straight forward 
since there will be no need to muck around with kernel stuff.
