The 8275a *is* significantly better - at least from my experience.
But there can be a ton of reasons why your board doesn't work yet.
I have a recent Lifeview design here (cardbus, hybrid). On this board,
almost everything is different from what we are used to so far.

- Does this board have 2 tda8275a?
- Does the DSP boot its firmware (guess not)?
- Is I2C communication smooth?
- Does the board have radio? If yes, how does the board switch the AGC?

You see, we need to clarify many issues.

Best regards
