Its website is here, but it's in chinese. Please let me know if there's an english page for it.
Bought it in Tainan, Taiwan for NT$2500 (USD$75 roughly). We bought this instead of a PCI DVB-T card only because my wife said "she doesn't want to open up a computer and plug a card in".
So it can do DVB-T, Analogue TV, as well as FM radio (never tried). It has one composite-in, s-video in, and audio in. It also comes with a remote control.
After pulling it apart and having a look at its board, it has a Trident TV Master TM6000 chip (sorry, in chinese again, they do have an english website but there is no info on the chip I can find). It also has an MT352 chip, and a Philips TEA5767 for the FM radio.
There is currently no driver on Linux for this device. Someone is writing a driver for the Trident TM6000 but still at very early stage of development.AverMedia has released Linux drivers for some of their other devices before. So I have e-mailed and asked them about possible driver for this A818. As expected they have replied they have no plan for releasing a Linux driver for this at the moment. And also due to licence issues they could not provide me (us) any information about the device to allow writing a driver.
Let me know if there's any information that I have missed and is useful.pigeon at pigeond dot net
