I need assistance with my Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick (800e)  ID 2304:0227

My belief is that I am only lacking firmware. I am running Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64. I have tried the 32 bit firmware. It works on my 32 bit machine, not on the 64. In my attempt to gain 64 bit drivers, I noticed a 64 bit folder in the file. I tried "hacking up" the script by changing the hash info to match the md5 of the hcw85bda.sys in said folder. It did extract "something" but I don't believe it to be the correct firmware as the the files are obviously different. But I had to try something :).

Anyway, I need 64 bit firmware (I think).

Also to note, I do have the current v4l2 installed from repository. That and the firmware was all I needed to use on the 32 bit machine. It also ran on this laptop with 32 bit OS. If anyone has or knows how to properly extract the firmware, I would be forever in your debt.
