Looking over the threads, it seems the 6150 works okay.  This was an issue
between the sound and the NIC prior to 2.6.19.  I'm not using XvMC, so thats not
an issue.  But I'm going to try out XvMC to see if I can at least get it to
playback.  But I've never had much luck with XvMC working for HD post 18.1.
