sorry to butt in here, but I'm following this thread closely, since I
own one of these cards and am getting ready to test it with your fixes
to the driver.
Question, kinda OT but still related, are you talking here about the
"Lite" version? composite/s-video/breakout box? My card is a Lite and
I only have a coax-in connector.....I can see a connection behind the
mounting bracket, is it functional?

Also, and if you don't mind the complete OT, I've been reading the
list like crazy for the past week or so, when you guys talk about the
frontend, what is it? is it the actual part of the board that does the
"tuning", the big metal box? Sorry for the noobiness here.

Thanks, Luis.
