Hi list,

haveing compiled the latest video4linux snapshot 20050307-161051 from
dl.bytesex.org for my 2.6.10 kernel on Debian Linux, everything seems
to work nicely.

I am using XINE as a viewer which works OK until I zap to the next DVB
channel in my playlist.

Sometimes the first and the second zap works if they are not too close
in time. After that XINE crashes.

I have monitored /var/log/messages and here is a sample of what it says:

Maybe Gerd, or someone else, more knowledgeable than me may be able to 
help ?

Here is what modinfo mt352 says:
