Thanks for the advice... I've already fixed the problem by ignoring FBUS 
& FDSR errors & adding resync... (Thank's to Manu's suggestion) Now it 
works very well - even better than it's cx88-based 'Gold' counterpart.

Only bug left is the problem where no TS data comes through after using 
the analog tuner, but I think I know how to fix that in bttv-cards.c ... 
Mac has given some feedback about this issue as well, and I don't think 
it will be too difficult to fix.  It looks like some GPIO gets written 
where it shouldn't, and I think all I should need to do is mask it. 
Today's not the day though... I have that card all set up in a machine 
that will be recording 2 hour's worth of PRISON BREAK on Fox, starting 
any minute...

Maybe later on tonight, if I have the energy...
