Just a quick note, common netiquette is to post your reply BELOW the 
quoted text.... No big deal, but it makes a difference to readers trying 
to catch up on the thread.

If you see FusionHDTV 5 USB Gold in your dmesg log, then it means that 
the module was build and installed correctly.  You will notice a -110 
error -- ignore it, it doesnt matter at all.

I am not familiar with the patches that go into FC3 kernels.  I 
developed this code on a SMP box, and you should have no problems in 
that regard.

You should try the device before asking any more "what if" questions 
;-)  (I know that sounds rude, but I mean it in the nicest way possible)

You might also benefit from this howto (soon to be moved to the wiki, 
when I get a chance) ... This will help for you to test functionality of 
your box:


Good Luck!
