I've got a DNTV-Live and that works fine under 0.19. (In Sydney)
Channel changing/ startup could be faster, but thats not a major
concern. (Don't watch much 'live' TV).
I have a Nova-T at work, but that machine is multicast streaming the
transport streams onto our LAN..
I'm having absolutely no backend/tuning problems. Can't say the same
for the front end, which now randomly crashes. Often it takes 3 or 4
front end restarts to watch a movie. I've taken to setting a bookmark
every couple of minutes so I don't have to fast forward that far when
the next front end crash occurs. (Fedora Core 4, ATRPMS). It's kinda
hard to debug as I can't actually read the text in the terminal windows
via TV out - i'm using composite TV out, so the xterm text is very fuzzy.
