Straight from the .inf file of DViCO's latest driver:

; SubSystem ID List
; ID Number  Board                      Assy Drwg No.  Tuner

; 0xD50018AC CX2388x FusionHDTV5                 LG 061P ATSC Tuner

Now, we already know that their information here isn't 100% correct... 
(FusionHDTV5 uses LG 062F, not LG 061P) ... I have noticed their 
information isnt consistent, so we must take this stuff at face value.

We can see here that Taylor is talking about the original Gold (topmost) 
model, without a daughter board.  Mac's Gold-Q model is refered to as 
the "FusionTV-HDR Gold" ... My Gold-T model is refered to as "FusionHDTV 
Silver Plus" ...

I suspect that Taylor's Gold card will work with the card definition for 
Mac's Gold-Q card, although CityK's quotes from DViCO make me doubt that 
QAM will work, although VSB should be fine.


Please test the drivers with your card, using the cx88xx insmod option, 
"card=17" ... This will force the FusionHDTV3 Gold-Q setup.  Although 
this card does not have a daughter board, it contains the same hardware 
as the board that Mac has.... I am mainly interested to know if the GPIO 
is programmed correctly for your board... Please test that.  If the GPIO 
is different, then we'll have to create a new card definition.  If it is 
the same, then I think we should create a pci subsystem pointer for 
18ac:d800 to point to the Gold-Q setup.  Maybe even rename Gold-Q to 

The information posted in CityK's email seems to be correct.  CityK, 
thank you for the info.
