I have, thanks to John Wehle's efforts.  I'm using it to capture Hi res
PAL video for a security project I've been working on.  Works
beautifully.  Maybe you need to check which chipset it's using.  Mine
has the LG Innotek chipset which Took John a couple of days of much
appreciated effort to get working, but it's been pretty much flawless
since he finished.

What software have you been using to try and get it to work?
