Thanks for the idea, but it didn't work for me, although I am now using 
ivtv-0.2.0-rc1o which could have stability issues of its own.

I will be upgrading to 2.6.9 in the next couple of days, its so much 
faster to upgrade now that I know about /proc/config.gz and make 
oldconfig :)

Thanks again for the suggestion, it was worth a try.
