If you are a Linux User, please share this news in INTERNET: it is about user generated content AGAINST TRIDENT and other CLOSED source vendors!!!
“It is important to notice that the vendor (Trident) doesn’t seem to want helping with open source development. Contacts with the vendor were tried during 2007 and 2008 in order to get their help by opening docs, via Linux Foundation NDA program, without success […] In brief, while we want to fix the driver issues, it is recommend to avoid buying any devices with tm5600/tm6000/tm6010 (and DRX demod) chips.”. See http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Trident_TM6000 for details.
