I did the checkout on Jun 26 01:14. So the fix should be included.

I thought Peter was using a TT 1.5 which is almost identical to my TT 1.6.
My setup is like this:

Epia M10000 running Gentoo with kernel 2.6.12 and dvb drivers from Jun 26
01:14. I am using one TT 1.6 as ff card and a skystar 2.6d. I had to swap my
older 2.6c which broke down and was replaced against a 2.6d ... Does this make
a difference?




Well, yeah ... I suppose there's no point in getting greedy, is there?
