mine has the analog parts (tuner, composite, svhs) working, but
I didn't test the radio. Latest snapshot of video4linux autodetect the card.
The dvb part is not working yet.

I can assure the the bundled windows software is really catastrophic:
it didn't work completely even once, and the bda driver is equally 
disgusting:
not a single time it worked with 3rd party applications, so if you plan to
use the card often your only chance is Linux.

Fortunately Linux driver and application always come to the rescue:
rock solid and quite quick channel switching. Only minor issue: audio seem
to be always samples at 32 khz.
