Doesn't look like logicsupply has the bcm970015 card.  Ebay doesn't return
anything either...

I could get a BCM970012, but it looks like the 15 will support DivX/XviD and
Flash 10.1 acceleration.  Am I correct in assuming the 12 doesn't support
those things then?  I saw a forum post about the 12 supporting Flash
acceleration in a beta driver, but that was just a blip on the radar screen.

Maybe I'll wait for the BCM970015?  It's all so exciting.  My appletv just
had a breath of new life breathed into it...  Best $200 I ever spent so
