[linux-dvb] Problem with scanning using latest cx88 build (Nova-T)

Sid,

Reverting to 2.6.10-3 patch build caused everything to burst into life
again. The Myth pids thing was a red herring. Newer builds of myth no longer
use the pid table, I just had not noticed.

So it looks like that at some point the snapshots stopped working with the
Conexant based Nova-T card.
