Not using the Avermedia (Nova-T, 90002 model, 2.6.10 kernel, FC2
backend) but having just gone through the upgrade from 0.16 to 0.18.1
which includes the big DVB improvements (from 0.17), I have to say it
is worth it. DVB seems slicker, and the channel scanning now built
into mythtv is a godsend and should get your system up and running
much quicker than before.
