That's not nice of them...

I've seen something about win XP  not working with the device...maybe 
check your wine settings against that also...

If the device stream av over the network, it might be possible to check 
with your firewall logs which ports are used and maybe try something 
like vlc?

  To fake what you don't know.
  Google what you can't fake.
  How (and when) to 'motivate' the computer to do what Google won't tell.
