    That's one of the reasons I suggested getting a more modern card. They
present a nicely packaged stream with everything in it and also do some 
useful compression. It's all tied up in a single package and you don't have
to futz with it afterwards

    At this point a BT848 seems like a lot of extra work and complexity that
just isn't needed any more. (and hasn't been needed for quite a long time).
