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.
