Thanks for your very quick reply.

The new code for the mt352 version of this card doesnt seem to be in the 2.6.12.5
kernel. This is strange because from what I have read I would expect it to be
there. The patch you mention above is listed as a patch to 2.6.13. See:
http://www.linuxtv.org/downloads/patches/2.6.13/quilt/dvb-bt8xx-nebula-digitv-nxt600-fix.patch

I downloaded the latest 2.6.13.2 kernel from kernel.org and checked that. 

This is the section from dvb-bt8xx.c in the 2.6.13.2 kernel

#ifdef BTTV_TWINHAN_VP3021
        case BTTV_TWINHAN_VP3021:
#else
        case BTTV_NEBULA_DIGITV:
#endif
                card->fe = nxt6000_attach(&vp3021_alps_tded4_config,
card->i2c_adapter);
                if (card->fe != NULL) {
                        break;
                }
                break; 

As you can see this looks nothing like the old code shown in the patch.

Maybe I am being stupid but it looks to me like code that should be in 2.6.13
isn't there.

Anyway - I guess this means - no it is not related to the new code.

Thanks
John
