It is by a startup company and I haven't seen it on the market yet.
There isn't much information available at the website(winux-it.com).

The tda1004x frontend code requires firmware from technotrend but I
have got my own firmware to load.

Am I right to simply set in dvb_usb_properties
.firmware = "my_firmware"

I feel like I am missing something here...

I have the vendor requests and firmware. This is my school project
with the startup and I had to sign an NDA.

Would including the tda1004x frontend and dvb-usb cause license
issues? Frankly, I am hoping the code can eventually be added into the
kernel since IMHO it's the best way to support devices.

Do proprietary drivers for the kernel not include any kernel code? I
am confused.
