Hi:  I've read this thread with some frustration because it's seemed 
remarkably lacking in specific information.  I have a dual tuner with 
the same chipset that gave problems initially but now works quite well, 
even when it's using two channels.  Project-X finds frames out of order 
or of the wrong length more often than with my other cards but usually 
manages to compensate and any glitches are pretty well unnoticeable on 
my setup.

After the flaky start thing got better when I moved from Fedora 12 to 
Fedora 13.  There was a thread about the Kworld device on Myth-users 
before that.

I'll copy this from my post on ATrpms-users (Request for V4L update) at 
the time:

> I started this thread because I had a dual-tuner dvb-t usb device that seemed capable of giving good recordings but was unreliable.  I have tried to minimise its use.  Yesterday a tennis-and-EIT based reschedule activated it and it made 3 simultaneous long and near-flawless recordings from 2 multiplexes.
> This change is probably because I've gone (on this box) from f12 to f13 - or maybe it's just time, and f12 has it too.  No v4l modules.  It looks now as if it might have been a good buy.  I got it from Maplin. dmseg lines are:-
