I'm using either pvr250_17_21288.exe or what came default on the cd. I
was having a bunch of problems a couple of weeks ago with the drivers so
I tried many different combinations, and now I can't remember which I
ended up using.
Does anyone know if there is a way/program to find out what ivtv
firmware version you're using?
