    Maybe this might help someone save time in the future.
    My compro personal cinema died on me about a week ago.
    Compro kept me playing with the drivers but I thought it might be HW related because the green lLED didn't light.
    Last night I pulled the computer apart and noticed there was a small secondary board parallel to the video card. The connection seemed iffy, so I managed to push it in a bit.
    BOOM, works like new!!

    I had the "daughter card" move away on one of my video cards as well although it did not yet cause a problem. No way to screw the thing down, huh?
