Hi,

I've been working with a 1002:a103 ATI HDTV Wonder (sometimes denoted as a
'VE' variant, perhaps better known as the one in the HP z556).

Only PCI functions 0 and 2 are visible.

The NIM is Philips, but seems to be a digital-only
variant of the one on the regular retail model:

3139 147 22461D#
TU1236/F H
SV20 0434
MADE IN INDONESIA

This tuner can be driven the same as the TUV1236D, except it has no TDA9887,
and doesn't have a alternate RF input, just the normal "DTV" input on top.
(I've not opened the can, but i have manually probed for the TDA9887 via
i2c and got no response.)

The card is missing the AK5355 audio chip, as well as the purple mini-DIN
input connector for the ATI Wonder purple breakout box.

The cx88xx card=34 option seems to work fine for me.  However there are no
sources of analog video on(to) the board, so that support is not really
going to do anything useful.
