There is a VDeviceBUZ class in
which supports the current DC10+ kernel API. All you need to do is port
the VDeviceBUZ class to Broadcast 2000. It's a very difficult job and
will cost you real money by the time it's done. You'll be better of
downloading and compiling lavtools for video capture or using a WinTV
with IDE RAID.
Really the DC10+ isn't very cost effective. Once you start using
640x480 you'll want to upgrade to 720x480 and work with uncompressed
data on the drives. Then later in life when you can afford a
professional board you won't be stuck with 640x480 stock footage from
your younger years.

So if I use lavtools for capture/playback, I should be able to
read/edit/compile MJPEG within Broadcast 2000? If this works, thats
perfect. Honestly, I can't afford to spend $500-$4000 on a board that
does uncompressed video, plus I don't have the cash for a big disk
array. This is for hobby purposes only. Not to mention I refuse to go
back to a microsoft operating system. ;)
I'd be tempted to tackle that class port, its a cold winter here in
Minnesota and I've got plenty of time.
Thanks for the info,
