Josu - i've seen your response on the v4l ML, looks like the kernel
update worked, out of the box (i presume mythbuntu11.10 - with kernel
i'm almost sorted with my AF9015 module, but problems keep occurring,
so i might be looking to upgrade to the hauppauge device, although
would like to be sure i know what this entails from my 11.04
