Hey Daniel,

In the UK, using 3 DVB-T cards in this particular backend. Currently running:

$ mythbackend --version

Please include all output in bug reports.
MythTV Version   : 17592M
MythTV Branch    : branches/release-0-21-fixes
Library API      : 0.21.20080304-1
Network Protocol : 40
Options compiled in:
 linux release using_oss using_alsa using_backend using_dvb
using_frontend using_iptv using_ivtv using_lirc using_opengl_vsync
using_opengl_video using_v4l using_x11 using_xrandr using_xv
using_xvmc using_xvmcw using_xvmc_vld using_bindings_perl
using_bindings_python using_opengl using_ffmpeg_threads using_live

I apply some (currently 8) patches in my build script, but none should
affect EIT.

I should be able to do this in a few weeks - very busy with
redecorating at the moment. My main installation is running
0.21-fixes, although I have a spare box I can put trunk on - can't
promise I'll get the same results though :)
