Hi,
can you send me a picture of your device and further info for inclusion 
to my
http://www.bttv-gallery.de ?

1st priority:
- picture of the device, the device top/ bottom/ backside (high 
resolution pics if feasible)
- lsusb
- lsusb -v (cold and warm)

further information:
- pictures of device inside: pcb upper side and back side (open at your 
own risk)
- picture of the package
- "*.INF" files from the Windows Driver CD

Regards, Gunther
