Indeed, their PR reads:
"- 3D development information for the RAGE(TM) Pro and RAGE(TM) 128 product
 - Video capture and TV-Tuner multimedia development information for the 
   RAGE(TM) II, RAGE Pro and RAGE 128 product families."

That's the driver developed by Marcus Metzler and his brother. It was
the topic of a TLUG meeting in the past, when Marcus was living
in Japan.

I have a Hauppauge PCI WinTV (Bt878-based) and it works fine (althought 
I use it only to capture images from the composite video input, didn't try 
to use the tuner yet -- need a longer coaxial cable for the antenna)
