Another later reply (with top posting fixed):

Running Debian-multimedia on my MBE and two FE's (0.24-fixes) with one 
HDPVR and two PVR150's.  Most channel changes work, occasionally get 
buffering issues but it generally works.  Having said that, the same 
system with master (as of last night) I can't get a single channel 
change to work.
