Hi 

I'm not sure what else I need to do, a couple of people have offered to
help but I think everyone's been a bit too busy. 

There is basic support for the cx23885 chip, and there appears to be
full support for the atsc version of this card but not for dvb. The
modules all load without error etc but it just appears to be trying to
tune to the wrong standard. It doesn't look like much work needs to be
done but I don't have the relevant skills to do so. 

If you wish I can email you some login details to access my machine so
you don't have to buy the card yourself, but there are times during the
day when I use this machine. Of course I imagine it may be easier to
have the card on hand. I believe the European and Australian cards are
the same. 

cheers

Allan
