VisionPLus DVB-T Driver (i think)

Can anyone help me install a driver for the VisionPlus DVB card? Im running Mandrake 10.1 with the stock kernel.

I tried and their driver seems to be for the 2.4 kernel. i havent tried it out with mine, but i would assume it wouldnt work correctly.

ok ive gotten the thing to register. It seems that the frontend is all registered and everything. And from what i gather that should be enough to make it work right? WRONG! MythTV still cant see it, and there is no /dev/dvb folder.

dmesg produces this result in reference to the DVB card

Linux video capture interface: v1.00
bttv: driver version 0.9.15 loaded
bttv: using 4 buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture

bt878 find by dvb adap: checking "DST"
dst_check_ci: recognize DTTDIG

However mythtvsetup still cant find the card. Im assuming its working to some degree as the frontend on the card seems to have registered ok.

My current modprobe.preload contains these lines in reference to dvb

bttv card=0x71 i2c_hw=1
dst dst_type=1

can anyone help in anyway?
