[mythtv-users] pcHD3000 card issues

I've got a question I'm hoping someone knows an a quick answer to. I 
just clean installed FC6 after having my myth box sit idle for a while. 
Thought that while I was upgrading HW, I would also upgrade to the 
latest .20 via yum and use the latest fedora. This thing worked like a 
champ before with the same cards (I upgraded the CPU and memory), but 
now the HD channels are out. I believe the problem to be the following. 
The or51132 driver loads the correct firmware I believe 
(dvb-fe-or51132-qam.fw, I'm in Chicago, IL, USA with comcast), but 
there's an error I have never seen before.

or51132: Waiting for firmware upload(dvb-fe-or51132-qam.fw)...
or51132: Version: 10001334-17430000 (133-4-174-3)
or51132: Firmware upload complete.
or51132: unknown status 0x64

The last line there is spit out by the driver when it's looking up the 
card parameters and setting it's modulation scheme. In this case, 0x06 
is VSB_8, 0x43 is QAM_64, and 0x45 is QAM_256. I think I want 0x45, but 
it's obviously getting 0x64. The code then returns an error here and I 
think I can't actually decode HD because the card is not setup 
correctly. There is no mod param to force any of this either. Does 
anyone have any thoughts, or has this been seen before?
