I am having the same issue in 2.6.17 and 2.6.16 but 2.6.15 works fine. I'm in 
Sydney. I have tried both 0.19-fixes and latest svn trunk.

For me ABC, SBS and Ten all don't work, only 7 and 9 do. For ABC myth reports 
0% signal strength and doesn't get a lock, for SBS I get a signal but no

2.6.15 works for me.

Me too. mplayer works fine (first go for me though, I don't get stutter)

Yep I think so too.

Have you tried this? I'm back in 2.6.15 and only want to go back to 2.6.17 if 
I know it's going to work.
