I hear ya, so this is still a love/work in progress I gather? -thats fine,
we all love a challenge.

I did portscan fetch;portscan extract; portscan update
that should do it right ?, or is there a special "usleepless" update
umm, trying to make sense of other threads here, does this mean install
FreeBSD 5.3 ? (is that the alternative for now?), ...

uhh ok, well thats' a small letdown, should I use the pvr250 ( they both
look the same to me pvr250/xxx ?) or maybe (on a dry-humour note)we could
remind these hardware manuf. giants that "sales" mean "sell as many cards as
you can and ignore FUD by big green machines !"... drivers,... for everyone.
-ya I know :) Alice in sum wunder.
thanks fo the above tip and,
[rick at tiger ~]$ pciconf -lv | grep -B 4 video
none0 at pci2:10:0: class=0x040000 card=0x40000070 chip=0x08034444
vendor = 'Conexant Inc (Was: Globespan, ICompression Inc)'
device = 'iTVC15/CX23415 MPEG Codec'
class = multimedia
subclass = video
and, (for lspci)
[rick at tiger ~]$ sudo lspci -v

it sounds close to me ?, am I reading this wrong, but how did you get
"yours'" working (or did you?) being you have the same cx23415 chip
(PVR-350) set I have -or is this a tuner specific fullfilment that is not
...sorry, see what I mean, .. stumped again
and thanks again for being patient about all this.
-you guys are supportively awesome, and anything i can do for da' cause just
