	It looks good. I noticed on the page though it talks about installing a 
'consumer' service. Does this mean that you still need vic to transmit 
	One of my biggest grievances about vic has been the problems 
encountered using a connexant bt881 chip under windows (not tried under 
linux). It just would not stop crashing when loaded. Finally we switched 
to an 878 based card (or cards) and it works great. So, that being said, 
  improved camera WDM driver support plus the ability to tell it on the 
ag configuration what wdm source I want to use for what vic (to get rid 
of the problems that running multiple cameras on a windows machine gives).
