It did work previously with the svn download from the ieee1394 site
for the kernels in the series of RT stuff that Ingo Molnar was
working on. Also, since I posted this, I tried catting a .wav file
to /dev/dsp, which is the output that kino is expecting to use, and
that sort of worked, playing the file at half speed and pitch. So I
believe its the upload from the camera, and the stripping of the
audio data from the stream from the camera thats at fault. But thats
just a SWAG on my part, & I probably should not have used the S
there. :)

This is the latest driver set for this card, downloadable from the
pcHDTV site. It overwrites, when it builds and installs, the bttv
and cx88xx stuffs in the modules dir. And it has worked up to
2.6.11-mm2, but I didn't get around to trying mm1. It worked with the
last of the RT's from Ingo, and for 2.6.11(.1).

I'm back on 2.6.11-rc5 and thats working as expected now.
