LifeView is the brand line marketed by Animation Technologies, a Taiwanese manufacturer of PC multimedia and video products.

Animation Technologies is also the OEM for a large number of products marketed by other vendors (example).

The LifeView company are not at all Linux friendly and you should avoid buying their DVB-T devices unless you have no alternative. LifeView supports only Windows and, in the case of the TV Walker Twin, they even refuse to support the device under Windows Vista.
