Thanks Martin,

I'd already realised that the package is called dvb-apps on the
linuxtv.org website (though most of the documentation seems to refer
to dvb-utils) and downloaded the cvs source and nearly got it to
compile (usb.h file not in the right place).  I'm happier with rpms
though, so knowing the name of the rpm package is a big help.

I'll see if there's a Fedora version, otherwise I'll give the Mandrake
one a try.
