Yes, lots.

Easy enough (at least with SuSE 9.1) to specify certain aliases for some
modules and totally different ones for another module, this means that
you can have two originally identically named modules, rename them and
just alias them when you need to load them

I'm running a PVR-350/Nova-T in a Pundit-R (with TV out of the PVR-350), 
I have issues with the DVB-T but mainly due to Mythtv issues[1] rather than 
having a DVB-T and PVR-350. When it works it works perfectly.



[1] Recording on a a channel where there isn't anything on that channel 
the next time the card is used and the card fails to tune to the/a channel
and misses recordings[2].
[2] Just on the 1/1000 chance that one of the dev's actually reads this
would it be possible to detect a failure to record and choose a different
rather than just give up?
