As it turns out, Thomson DDT 761X has tda9887.... Not only that, but my
FusionHDTV3 Gold-T isn't fried at all -- I was suffering from the same
problem as Gene, Don and Perry.... I just dont understand why it wouldnt
work with older kernels or in windows.
Oh well.... I applied the same fix to FusionHDTV3 Gold-T as was applied
to pc HDTV 3000 ..... Now all is well. 8-)
