The sticky part would be in terms of its A/V Decoder: The Skytune
Sky951; which is owned by VBox through a series of changes ( Auravision
-> Skytune -> Broadlogic -> VBox )

As far as I know, there is no public info/datasheet.  As I had mentioned
to Mike K before, a former VBox representative has stated that they did
have internal Linux drivers for the 150/151 models, but they did not
have intentions in the near term of releasing support for Linux.
