  Yes, as they have some kind of Linux support yet in their webpage (as
they provide some precompiled modules for some distros and kernels) I
have asked them to release the code or give LinuxTV the information
required for us to write our own driver. I have explained to them that
precompiled drivers are not useful even for people using the
distribution they claim to support, as they will have probably upgraded
their kernel.

  I sent the mail to Spanish support address, and they replied me that
they had resend the request to their software development center in
Taiwan. It has been a week from that now, and I haven't got any reply
from .tw

  Nice to hear that. If it is not 100% the same I hope that at least it
is close enough to allow some modifications and to make the card work.

  Thanks you very much for all your work. And of course, if you need
some testing, just ask. I am quite busy during the week, but I'll try to
answer promptly.
