I have looked at 1.4ulmo, but don't actually use them.  There appears to 
only be three types of changes (a larger buffer, different timeouts, and 
true pre-eq signal strength).  Based on what I have read from your 
messages, it doesn't appear that they work any worse.

I started working on merging the pcHDTV drivers with the latest v4l2 
snapshot on 2.6.9-rc3, but it turned out to be a bigger job than 
anticipated. 2.6.9-rc2 is working great and there haven't been any real 
v4l or alsa changes in rc3 or rc4, so I figure I'll wait until 2.6.9 is 
released before spending any more time on it.

Nice, unfortunately my birthday has already passed so I have to wait for 
Christmas for my wife to buy me one :-) .
