The Nova-T-500 is stable apart from EIT, which occasionally causes a
backend crash. (once every few weeks for me). A friend and I bought
one each, and have had good success with them. If you don't use EIT
you don't get the problem.

There's no support for the built-in IR receiver, unfortunately. It's
not the same as either the Nova-T PCI or the USB model.

You do need a 2.6.19 kernel, though - and now 2.6.20 is released, that
probably works too, although I haven't tried it yet.
