I have no problem with the dvb EPG apart from the issue with ITV3 which has 
been commented on (I run dvb-grab hourly to get around the ITV3 issue)

If you do intend to dash out and buy a DVB card tomorrow check out 
ebuyer.co.uk. They have the Hauppauge Nova-T at a really good price
(53 +VAT) Its the latest version with the Conexant chip set.
