The driver I'm working is for tm5600/6000 chips, that seems to be
present on your device. If I have some time today, I intend to buy
another tm6000 device, if I found a cheap one.

The analog part of the driver is already know to work with NTSC, PAL/BG
and PAL/M (probably, it should work also with other PAL variants). I
still have to figure out a few details for the digital audio part. 

DVB support isn't working fine yet, but this is a matter of time to have
it fixed. Michel Ludwig is working on that part. I hope to have more
contributors soon.

Yes. It would be really nice if you can help testing with the driver. If
you have programming capabilities, please feel free also to contribute
with the development.
