Do as you think best. But I have no problem getting newer (bt878) Hauppauge 
cards working with kernels 2.4.17 and 2.4.19, so I doubt that a move to 
2.4.20 will solve your problems. I really think you need to focus on 
telling the module what the hardware is ... it is not autodetecting properly.

Whatever you try, good luck to you ... and don't hesitate to post follow-up 
questions as needed.

And thanks for the clarification on pci latency ... either I've not noticed 
this setting or I run BIOSs that don't let me change it (I guess).
