The tricky part with many of these DVB cards is that often the vendor ship
their drivers either completely in binary format, or for those who support
Linux, in 'mostly' binary format.

I have such a DVB card (by a different vendor) and it's unlikely that it would
ever be supported without substantial reverse engineering (i.e. time), so
I'll probably end up selling it.
