I have a Mystique SaTiX-S2 Dual (v2) and using Oliver Endriss' tree from 
linuxtv.org it's been running well for the past 12 months or so, albeit 
on an older (2.6.35) kernel.  No problems with missed recordings or 

I've not tried updating to a newer kernel due to lack of time and 
motivation but at some point I'd like to and I'm just hoping that the 
changes in that tree have now made it to the kernel because the 
in-kernel drivers didn't work very well wil multiple simultaneous 
recordings last time I tried them.
