I bought the same card last week as part of a new Mythbox I'm building.
I spent 2 hours assembling and installing Ubuntu and then about 8 over

In one PC I get various 'unknown PCI type 10' (I'm paraphrasing here)
when booting and then can only see the 'unknown device 6800' in lspci.

I've tried a new kernel (188.8.131.52) to no avail. My card is also a
