I'm using 2.6.13-rc3 currently and vanilla sources since 2.6.12-rc4 have 
all worked without the need for patches. Apps used are kaffeine from cvs 
which has a scan feature which will present all stations scanned on the 
right hand side, then you need to select each and add to the left side 
of the GUI for permanent selection, klear and xawtv snapshot from 
dl.bytesex.org/cvs-snapshots configured with
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-alsa --enable-lirc --enable-zvbi 
--enable-mpeg2 --enable-dvb --enable-arts --enable-xfree-ext 
--enable-xvideo --enable-mmx --enable-dv --enable-quicktime

If xawtv was configured without --enable-dv, it kept looking for video0 
which is non-existent for this card.
