Actually, I didn't even run a preview under windows... since it was the
newer firmware that broke the driver, I'm back on the original driver.
Problem is, that one's pre-SPDIF support.  And now I need it... I've got
the tuner all set up.  And I'm *loving* it.  Much better than firewire,
as I'm now getting *ALL* of the channels I'm paying for.  (Though it was
a bear to setup, having to go into the DCT6200 menu, which meant hooking
the box up directly to the tv, etc...)

Anyhoo - because I'm using original, pre-SPDIF firmware, and the latest
firmware apparently isn't supported by the driver yet, can anyone point
me to a firmware version that supports SPDIF that *IS* supported by
Janne's driver?
