If - repeat IF it works.... yes.
On my 350 I am running a patched 0.1.9-ck version, which is quit stable.
Yet it is a patch (for PAL) on a ck-vbi-28-osdstream. That system is
using a 2.4 kernel, and plain 0.1.9 was impossible to get something out
of. It was very consistently and stably showing no usable video...
On the 250 in the master backend, its kernel 2.6, so 0.1.9 is
impossible. Thats version pre2-ck07D. And rather stable. Runs for weeks
Kernel 2.4 is not possible on that HW, it includes a number of SATA disks.
So your mileage may vary, as usual.
