As already mentioned by Brett, plug the device in and do the lsusb
thing. If Linux recognises the device, then try.... grep -i dvb
/var/log/messages. There are still a number of dvb devices for which
firmware is required. This command will show whether the device is
recognised and if the required modules are loaded. LinuxTv.org is a mine
of information regarding getting these devices working.
If these steps are unsuccessful, you are quite entitled to return the
product for a full refund as the product was mis-represented to you at
the time of purchase. The Trade Practices Act is your friend here.
Feel free to post output here if you think I can help.
