I don't think you will have good luck finding the older,
"FusionHDTV Dual Digital 2" ... but you are welcome to try.  If you find
one, it may be a good idea to let the other users on the list know about it.

OTOH, I think that the newer version is actually better... except for the
fact that it isnt yet supported in linux.

If I suddenly lose access to the current machine I'm using in Australia, then
I'll let you know.  Until then, not really much you can do besides wait.

I'll try to get this going before the end of next week, but no promises :-)

I'll let you know.
