I made the mistake of buying a TBS card, it worked OK in 2.6.32 with
their proprietary driver, then I had to hack the drivers for 2.6.35,
it looks like the manufacturer won't be open-sourcing the whole driver
any time soon and ICBA to hack it further.

Recently the TBS card has started hanging my PC whenever it's inserted
(I think I'll take a rather satifying hammer to it) so I've just
bought a TeVii S480, the drivers are included in mainstream 3.1 kernel
(maybe also in later 2.6.3x ones).

Can't comment on long term reliability yet only had it two days...
