None of the cards work.  At the time Mike B. was still working on it, as 
Mac Michaels mentioned, they couldn't get any info on the Nxt200x 

The good news is, since the time Mike had to personally put development 
on hold, a driver for the Nxt200x demodulators has been produced (by 
Jacob Taylor IIRC).

The bad news is, Mike won't be returning until late this fall, and only 
he knows if he'll resume development...of course, someone else could 
resume the project in the meantime, and that certainly was what Mike B. 
had been hoping for before he left.  Mac, having previously helped with 
the project, would have a better understanding of what is left to do.
