You mean the mail to Gerd and me on the 8e config part (if there are
more than that email, please resend!)? I have patched the snapshots and
already built rpms for FC1 and FC2, but they have not yet been
uploaded. So the currently published video4linux snapshot rpms will
have the wrong tuner definition.

Sounds to me like it will snow ... :(

Mike, I'll reply to the mail to Gerd and me as soon as the rpms have
been uploaded, but beforehand, thanks for the fix (and thanks again
for the patches :)
