I tried out the new firmware (I just renamed it to the original firmware 
name, rather than patching as thats all the patch seemed to do and my 
system works, and is my main TV, so didn't want to risk breaking it! )

I found tuning less reliable with the new firmware, it would take 2 
launches of xine to tune correctly, when I went back to the old firmware 
it was better.

Hope this helps, if you need some diagnostic info obtained please give 
me some instructions and I'd be happy to help.
