Smile Is a Broadcom Crystal HD card installed or not? - 07-21-2010, 05:31 PM

Is there an easy way of identifying wether i definitely have the card installed? I got my mini 1012 HD from the Dell outlet, and the specs on there were vague to say the least!

Thanks in advance for any help with this ;-)

Well, in response to my own query. I opened up the Dell Mini and there is absolutely no Broadcom Crystl HD card present!

Shouldn't it come as standard with the higher resolution screened HD model of the 1012?

I'm pretty livid to be honest. Dell Outlet have such scant spec's, it's mostly guess work as to what your getting.

Not unless Dell said it was there. The 1012 can still display HD without the card.

Thanks for the reply mate ;-) I was beginning to think this forum was a bit of a ghost town! :-p

Anyways, the card actually IS present it seems!

I could not see the card - at least as i had seen it pictured on the net - as I have the newer version of the card, which is half the size of the older model BCM970012. Where as mine is the newer BCM970015 version, with built in XviD/DivX decoding apparently.
