Thanks for the forward Hermann, I am now subscribed on video4linux too.
A week ago, I upgraded my BIOS to the latest available version , that is
dated 10/17/2006 , version 6.00 PG. My rs492-m model is one with the
optionnal firewire interface (v1.0a).
May I ask you what version of the kernel are you using ? I am using
2.6.19 currently (with gentoo patches).
