"Is there any other card which really works?" - I would ask that as a new question. "I have driver issues" - I would update the question with some details of the issues (and do say what Blackmagic support said when you reported the problem). "...which you recommended" - I didn't, I just showed where they said they supported Fedora 10-13 and Centos 5. – RedGrittyBrick Sep 4 '11 at 10:18
