Summary and solution:

Inside the Sunvideo Plus Installation Guide state that
the minimum OS required by SunVideo Plus PCI card (P/N: 370-3278)
is 2.5.1 Hardware 4/97.
So, it should be supported on Solaris 2.6
But this statements is wrong, as someone point out inside www.sun.com
it says that the SunVideo plus Support for Solaris 2.6 will be available in
Jan/Feb 1998.
Therefore we need to wait for the new drivers to drive the board.
