Hi Stephen

There was already a page of sorts:
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Leadtek_Winfast_PxDVR_3200_H
I've added to it. I don't have winodws on that machine, but it apears
someone has done that for me already.
I have some more photos, of even higher res is you want them, but won't
clutter up everyone's inbox if not need/ wanted.

Cheers

Jon
