"I have read the feedback on the successes reported with Bob Macdonald's CMI8330_XP.zip download file. I too have downloaded it and found three files there, one being the instalXP.txt with the comprehensive instructions. Before I start I would like to check if this is appropriate for the Sound PRO HT1869V+ chip because that is what I searched for and what came back included
