Thanks again Soyeb

Currently using 2.6.13-chw-3 (base of KnoppMyth R5A22), plus the 
following patch, which I had to apply manually --
http://manenti.org/blog/cx88/kworld_vstream_last_verbavolant.diff
(I replaced the existing PLAYTV entry on number 27 in cx88.h for Marco's 
KWORLD entry, and commented the PLAYTV sections in two other .c files to 
get it to compile)

For more info on what makes up KnoppMyth R5A22 see --

Following are outputs of tzap, lspci, and a dmesg excerpt.
