Ask DibCom whether the reference is available right now, for immediate 
delivery with full driver support. Also ask them whether they are ready 
to ship in volume.

Now that Peter has chosen to announce the product, I can probably tell 
you a little more about it. We specifically chose the design for two 
reasons. 1) The 3000 demod is very sensitive and worked very well on our 
previous Nova-T-USB2 design. 2) Building a design with a PCI Bridge / 
USB controller give us the performance we need and a great price point.

The product is running very well in the lab. It's a nice clean design, 
looks good. I think the market will like it.
