OK, I'm a linux newbie... googled for 'Xv' - are you talking about the image
editing program? If so, how does it relate to myth? or is this a case of

Can you point me to more info on this? I've been using the Live for quite
some time and have gotten fairly familiar with the community at large's
views on the card... I do amateur/pro/audio/recording work and have found
the card great for my purposes (its basicly a rebadged, rebundled version of
a card which sells under pro audio monickers for 10x more) and isn't known
to have any troubling PCI issues... at least under windows... are the
problems you speak of linux-specific? Stability issues? I've had the card
running very stable under redhat so far, so I'd have no reason to switch to
something else unless I discovered it had been implicated in performance

The big thing about the Gatos drivers is the improved Xv support. As far
as AIW, I would avoid it still (due to the Tv-out support issues).
On the SoundBlaster Live, SBLive has a history of causing PCI problems
on all vendors motherboards (VIA just being the most affected).
