Todd-

I never heard back from you.... How did that patch work on your board?

I need that PCI subsystem ID from you..... There are a few different 
versions of the FusionHDTV3 Gold, and each one uses a different tuner.  
Once again, I assumed that you have the 18ac:d200 model, using the 
Philips 1236d...

Please let me know if that patch works for you... If so, I'll clean it 
up and apply it to cvs, so that others can use that card in their 
systems as well.

Cheers,
Mike
