Yes, I am pretty sure it is what I need - many thanks. Have snaffled a
copy straight away...

I've added a note in the wiki for Avermedia A16D
warning about Markus' files no longer being available as per the link

Are you able to put up a link to your snapshot? I appreciate there may
be copyright issues etc. but it would help a lot of people. I don't
think it appropriate for me to add your URL (above) to the wiki without
your agreement!

Thanks again
