First of all I would like to thanks everybody for sharing their experience that could help me to do this upgrade of BCM970015 on S10-3T.
To answer to your questions:
1.yes.(I don't have to disable the card when a shutdown the win7 (I have an atheros wifi card on first pci-media )).
2. difference i think is the suport of flash 10.1(the proc don't get low, but you can watch at 720p and 1080p), and it can handle more different format of decoding. I think you can found more detail on the official site of broadcom.
3. link for download. I DONT TAKE ANY RESPONSABILITY!!!!
If you have more questions, please let me know.
Good luck and have a nice day

Thank you for letting me know that the 7015 card will work fine. and thank you for your bios link. Now I just have to find use for the 7012 card I already had ordered.... maybe ill throw it in my car pc.
Anyone know of a bios that supports fn/ctrl switch and the 7015?
Just wanted to confirm the 70015 does work with the bios hack linked above in orange but not the original posted one. The card fits nicely in the slot and the steel plate makes for a nice heat sync for the card. Ive seen great video output where video was choppy at first. 10/10 in my book.

S10-3 here (no T).
With the xxxxx015 Decoder card, I am having trouble with the following:
Second, create 2 batch files (starthd.bat and stophd.bat) in C:\.
The start will contain this line:
devcon enable "PCI\VEN_14e4&DEV_1612*"
and the stop will contain this line:
devcon disable "PCI\VEN_14e4&DEV_1612*"
Once the driver is installed, open Device manager and also a command prompt.
In the command prompt run stophd.bat and verify it disables the device. Then run starthd.bat and verify it starts the device. Once you see that the batch files work, run stophd.bat once again (THIS IS IMPORTANT!).
Simply put, the script(s) are not resulting in any changes to the hardware starting or stoping. I imagine that it has to do with the difference in laptops and Crystal cards being used. Any pointers?
As an alternative, I did find this post for the eee mini-PC, which describes the "Cold Boot" issue, and lists a workaround for it.
Figured out to get the device hardware ids via Device Manager/properties/hardware ids.
Just had to change the last digit "2" to a "5" (no quotes).
Upgraded to Win7 Ultimate to have gpedit functionality (didn't want to go reg edits method) and added startup/shutdown scripts. All is working great. Thanks!!!
Didn't try the cover pin24 workaround alternative...
