It was a small aside about the way that devices do/don't announce themselves, 
and the difficulties that OSs sometimes have in recognising them.  I freely 
admit that although I've had the monitor for at least 6 months now I haven't 
tested to see whether the DV input is now supported in the kernel, so I don't 
know whether it is a driver problem or the 'announce' problem.

It's not significant, in detail terms, to the thread, but there is some 
correlation.
