Devin,

I did a little more debugging and it seems that the I still have a problem
with the .20 version.  However, you only see it after a cold reset ie when
you need to load the firmware.  See below for the first dmesg which is with
the .20 firmware.  As you can see the card is found but only in a cold
state.  The second dmesg is with the .10 firmware and the card is found
firstly in a cold state and then in a warm state.  Each of these dmesg
outputs have been after a power off from the power supply for 10 seconds ie
no power to backplane.

I have not applied the patch as I followed instructions on
http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-NOVA-T-500 which doesnt
mention this.  I am using the latest v4l-dvb source. 

I can apply the patch to test if required.  Can you please let me know where
this is and I will try it.

Tom
