Is anyone using the 'dvb on demand' setting? If the card is not always used
by mythtv then it shouldn't be too hard to run a script to tune to the
'best' multiplex (using one of the dvb utils) and then run the grabber. That
would also give consistency on EPG data.
(Incidentally, does anyone know if using dvb-on-demand will save on power

Should be simple enough to edit the source to line them up.
