Todd -

Thanks for the write up. I understand you have the Fusion HDTV3 from  
your post. I'm wondering if anyone has experince with the Fusion  
HDTV5 ATSC. The first question is of course, how well supported is it  
under Linux? Patching the kernel doesn't bother me, I'm asking about  
driver stability and image quality.

I realize the PCHD3000 is the "safe bet" as it is well supported  
under Linux and appears to have an active development community  
behind it. I don't hear as much about the Fusion HDTV5 ATSC under  
Linux but I'm attracted to the updated hardware on the Fusion HDTV5  
ATSC board.
