Uh, no.

Take another look at that page. I already added something at the top yesterday 
afternoon that says "350 output may be tanked under FC3". That said, my FC3 
Myth box works just fine, I just haven't had time to try 350 output lately.

Horsefeathers. I'm using the ck100zz drivers on my FC3 Myth box without a 
problem. They seem pretty useful to me.

Only a very small portion isn't working.

Then please try using the very latest 0.2.0-rc build and 0.7 ivtv driver. 
Rumor has it this fixed some bug that was causing major problems on FC3.

Hopefully someone figures out how to fix it and sends me updated instructions 
so everyone else can be saved the work. Or I'll do it myself when I have the 
time. I just don't have the time right now, my personal life is a bit on the 
busy side. Sorry. I hope to have a chance over the upcoming weekend to tinker 
with my 350's output.
