I was kind of hoping this was a driver issue that would be resolved
shortly.  I will have to swap around the cards in that box since the
motherboard I have seems to have a capacitor placed such that the
PVR-500 won't seat correctly.  I think the PVR-350 will fit there, it
has the IR connector on the bottom edge and it is smaller than the audio
connector on the PVR-500 which is on the bottom edge.
