Hello everyone just one quick question getting ready to re install with my new card. I have a Radeon HD 6770 I just got and I want to keep my HD 4670 to connect to my tv what firmware should I use. I want to use the Radeon drivers. Thanks.

You need firmware for both cards, as the radeon driver will initialize both..

The 4670 uses radeon/R700_rlc.bin and the 6770 uses radeon/JUNIPER_me.bin radeon/JUNIPER_pfp.bin radeon/JUNIPER_rlc.bin

aortell24,
If you follow the procedure here and use the 'module' approach then you shouldn't have to worry which firmware blob to use :wink:
