Philips Tivo and Sony TVs

Solved by TiVo - 2.01 software gave me code 0067 which worked

When my TiVo turned up I programmed its remote to control my Sony KV-32S35 without any problem. However I forgot to write down the code I used. Fast forward a year, and I get a second remote. No matter what code I try, I cannot get it to control any of my Sony TVs. I have three, they all use the same remote codes, and yet TiVo can't control them. It is possible I have a defective remote, but there is no easy way to tell that I know of.

Windows 2000 Video Drivers for BookPC

Solved by John Cunningham - see Intel 810 Video Drivers

Has anyone got a video driver for the BookPC that actually works? One that emits a signal on the s-video port? I have tried a range of drivers, and none have given me a TV option in the Control Panel. The only way I can get TV output at the moment is to boot the machine, quickly press F8 to get into the Options menu, then choose VGA Mode. I get TV output, but at 640x480x16 which is far fom ideal.
