Hi all. Regarding the Reveal TV500, I'm afraid the answer doesn't lend
itself toward a solution. Below is an excerpt from my exchange I had with
Ted Sorrells, another list user who went down this road a while back . . .

Fortunately, I was able to get a local distributer's last TV300, which -
with much tweaking on my part - does work with CUSM. Note, however, that
it's is somewhat antiquated, doesn't work with PCI bus video cards, and is
no longer being manufactured.

Sorry for the bad news...
