I finally got a chance to do some testing with the PCTV 74e, using the GPL reference driver that Abilis provided. I'm happy to report that at least our initial testing shows that it works out of the box!
Testers are welcome to try the following hg tree:
hg clone http://kernellabs.com/hg/~dheitmueller/v4l-dvb-as102
Note, under Ubuntu if you receive errors about not being able to compile the firedtv driver, open "v4l/.config" and change the firedtv=m to be firedtv=n.

I spent the last few days working on some basic quality problems with the KWorld 2800d (an em2860/saa7113 design). It would seem that I uncovered a bug that was introduced almost four years ago which would have resulted in reduced quality for all saa7113 based products. I'm also working on a couple of formatting bugs on the em28xx.
I took a bit of time this evening and started looking at the code that Abilis provided for the as102. The chip in question is used in the PCTV 74e (otherwise known as the picoStick). PCTV Systems pushed for the code's release under the GPL, and they deserve the credit...
