Hi Hamish,

Ah that makes more sense now - I remember someone on one of the DVB 
lists mentioning that the DVB-T was going to be have a different front 
end introduced at some time in the future.

I still have some problems with the dvb-kernel drivers, but the newer 
CVS myth versions seem to have improved DVB support a lot - ie Tuning to 
a bad channel or excessively bad signal will at least not Seg Fault as 
it used to.

Do you ever have issues with Channel 7 ? - specifically when going form 
programmes to ads - they seem to change the aspect ratio which causes a 
freeze for a second, but then comes back good.  Also SBS seems a lot 
more prone to interference - although it might be due to SBS being the 
only UHF dvb channel.
