Hello all,

Has anyone had any luck with this device?

Has anyone tried to approach the manufacturer?  They seem to have a
website at http://www.afatech.com.tw/e_home.htm

On the page at http://www.afatech.com.tw/product/e_product.htm they show
their dvb-t chips, and state that there a datasheet.

I don't mind asking, but thought I should ask if anyone has tried this
already.
