Sorry for being confused, I just thought that cards were put on a todo list.  Ill update the wiki with the info on the merlinC.rom file. I got the remote from gateway free of charge, which is cool, but now I cant open it to  get photos of it up on the wiki and since I ditched vista for M$ faster better supported OS windows xp pro I got no use for the remote, so its a ice looking paperweight. As far as contributing the only thing safe for me to do is testing, I looked at the cx23885 source code and figured I do a little copy paste rename to get it to stop saying its an unknown card and winced, my luck even though im in Linux I figured if I messed with the code long enough id end up with a windows blue screen of death. at least that's what happened when I tried to write a cpuid program in windows. sorry for getting of topic. thankx for your help.

something with gateway written on it and a windows logo being a paperweight isn’t to suprising.
