its not a power supply problem thats for sure.. both myth boxes are the
same except for one has a pvr350 and the other a 150. i ll check the
bios settings today but i am not sure thats it either.
if i pull the 150 the system does see the 5500. both loaded with same
mythdora software too. this is a real gotcha .. must be something
simple i am missing.. i ll check the ir q settings but my guess is
thats not tweekable.. thanks brian i ll try a few more ideas
