I have a 761 and have just ebay'ed a different card since I'm not happy
with it.  I get very high signal noise - the two MUXes which use the
lower error correction rates (the ones with C4/ITV/etc) are really
unviewable.  The Freeview STB works fine so I'm guessing (hoping ;) this
is just a problem with the card. 

Otherwise I haven't had any problems with the card - it's supported
out-of-the-box by the FC3 kernel, as is the IR interface, though the
remote is pretty basic.
