New revisions of that card use the Conexant cx2388x chipset in place of the 
bt878. (btw, the bt878 is technically also a Conexant chipset -- they bought 
Brooktree years ago). Anything in a new box at the store is likely to have 
the new chipset, which does work marginally with the still-very-alpha-quality 
cx88 driver. Not well enough that I'd want such a card in my Myth box.
