I have two of the Leadtek DTV1000T in a backend, and they're working
great. However, it looks like they 1000S has a different chipset, so
that probably doesn't help.

It appears that the only winfast cards in the stock Lucid kernel are the
cx88 based ones, but the DTV1000S, DTV2000DS and DTV2000H+ all have
other chipsets. If you can find a DTV2000H or DTV2000H rev J, they
should work.

However, I've only had a brief browse through the kernel, I may be wrong
about the non-working ones. This may also help:


Not sure about the Compro ones, can you find any of these:? 

   "Compro VideoMate TV",
   "Compro VideoMate TV Gold+",
   "Compro VideoMate TV PVR/FM",
   "Compro VideoMate Gold+ Pal",
   "Compro VideoMate TV Gold+II",
   "Compro Videomate DVB-T300",
   "Compro Videomate DVB-T200",
   "Compro Videomate DVB-T200A",
   "Compro VideoMate T750",
   "Compro VideoMate S350/S300",
