Well, all of the above - plus the fact that I don't have cx88-atsc on
my stsrem -
just goes to show that there are many way to get the HD-3000 card to work !

Over-the-air TV from the antenna on the roof is the only input for my HD-3000.
It might be worth a try to install xawtv and see if it will use my
HD-3000 without
the firmware being uploaded.  But before I get to that, I still have
to solve the
problem of Scanned Channels getting Guide Data associated with them.
