    When I try to update the driver with what's on the website I get a 
Blue Screen of Death. All in all, the experience of needing to install
the drivers under windows in order to get the firmware updated has made
me less inclined to gripe about the state of drivers and driver installers
on Linux.

    It was a f*cking pain in the *ass.

    One guy is capturing successfully through the component inputs with
occasional glitches. I've tried to capture through the svideo and composite 
input with no success. Once I took the HDHomeRun off of it, my unit cooled
down to something reasonable. Still might RMA it though.
