First, Welcome to the Journey. I invested over 100 hours getting my
system installed, configured and operational.

Second, I also have experience in Unix and Linux. I happened to work
on a DOD Unix software application project. The last update on
J.Wilson's site worked for me. I used the pcHDTV-2.0 drivers and
rebooted. dmesg showed my card being identified as HD3000. I also have
a PVR250 so I had to make sure each came up in the right order.

Finally, this is a great group of people. They demonstrate patience
beyond what I've observed as normal from an online community. Do your
best to search the archives and when you are at your last straw, post
your problem with some background and specs of your configuration.

enough details gets the most flames.

Again, welcome to the journey,
