Re: AIW Radeon+LX164--compatible?

The radeon AIW pci (classic, not the value all in wonder) works perfectly in 
my LX.  It is running right now.  The gatos project (http://gatos.sf.net) has 
working TV in for x86, but as of yet no working driver for alpha (that I ahve 
found).  They are welcoming any alpha people to help them.

If this is the Radeon ("classic") all in wonder, the 32 bit pci variety, also 
known as the radeon7200 (i think that is what Mike said) it works and has DRM 

The TV-in is just a matter of debugging the current gatos drivers to work on 
alpha.  If you need help i can poke inside my box for model numbers or find 
my docs.  Let me know.
(It doesn't seem like my messages are getting to the lists, so please let me 
know if you get this)
