Afatech 9015 in Linux

I recently got a noname USB DVB-T receiver which I’ve been trying to get to work on my Debian GNU/Linux laptop. While inserting the device, here’s syslog output:

Jun  8 20:11:28 utskottet kernel: [ 5540.744100] usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5 Jun  8 20:11:28 utskottet kernel: [ 5540.881274] usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=15a4, idProduct=9016 Jun  8 20:11:28 utskottet kernel: [ 5540.881307] usb 1-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 Jun  8 20:11:28 utskottet kernel: [ 5540.881316] usb 1-4: Product: DVB-T 2 Jun  8 20:11:28 utskottet kernel: [ 5540.881322] usb 1-4: Manufacturer: Afatech Jun  8 20:11:28 utskottet kernel: [ 5540.881327] usb 1-4: SerialNumber: 010101010600001 Jun  8 20:11:28 utskottet kernel: [ 5540.881557] usb 1-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice Jun  8 20:11:28 utskottet kernel: [ 5540.895370] af9015: tuner id:179 not supported, please report!

I followed these instructions and now I at least have channel lock. Still struggling to get picture in mplayer.. hg clone -r 0f41fd7df85d http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/af9015/ Patch with this patch, make, copy the firmware, reboot and voilá.
