Thanks for the alternate path to the ati_2681.patch.

Once again, it turns out to be User Error on my part.
If I had just trusted Gmail and Left-clicked the attachment,
it would have popped up in a separate browser window.
To verify that Gmail's version and the alternate you provided
are the same, I downloaded both.  They are identical.

I'll try my hand at applying the patch on a companion
machine first.  Since I'm so good at the User Error game,
it just seems like the right thing to do, to avoid hosing up
the running-fairly-well mythtv machine.

After that, I'll have to actually BUY an ATI REMOTE WONDER.
The little grey remote that came with the PVR-350 is nice, but too
small.  My dog could eat that thing and I'd be pulling cushions up
for days.
