First it must be known what chips, tuners etc are inside. If there are 
drivers for those, supporting the device will be relatively easy. If 
there are no drivers, they will have to be written by either getting the 
specs and writing or reverse engineering and writing. That is much more 
work. If the chips are not supported already, no specs are given and 
nobody feels like reverse engineering, it will never be supported. If 
the chips are supported already, it can be supported in a day (at least 
very fast). All depends on what is there to see inside the device, it's 
impossible to say anything now.
