Ah that makes more sense now - I remember someone on one of the DVB
lists mentioning that the DVB-T was going to be have a different front
end introduced at some time in the future.
I still have some problems with the dvb-kernel drivers, but the newer
CVS myth versions seem to have improved DVB support a lot - ie Tuning to
a bad channel or excessively bad signal will at least not Seg Fault as
it used to.
Do you ever have issues with Channel 7 ? - specifically when going form
programmes to ads - they seem to change the aspect ratio which causes a
freeze for a second, but then comes back good. Also SBS seems a lot
more prone to interference - although it might be due to SBS being the
only UHF dvb channel.
