I apologize for not getting back to you about the ssh tunnel last 
night... Things just got too busy for me here and I didnt have the time 
for it.  However, it looks to me like we're better off this way -- you 
fixed the problem yourself.  I'm glad to hear it.

Meanwhile, cvs works for me, and not for you.  This raises some concern. 
  It looks as if kernel 2.6.14 will be released relatively soon.  Within 
two weeks of 2.6.14 release, patches from both DVB and V4L trees will be 
merged into 2.6.15 development.

It would be extremely helpful to me if you could also test some of the 
2.6.15-rcX kernels, to ensure that you don't experience any of the same 
problems that you had while attempting to use the code in cvs.

Hopefully the problems that you had will have simply vanished by then. 
Most, if not all, of the tuner-autodetection problems relating to 
tda8290/tda8275/tda8275a/tda9887 have been resolved, to the best of my 
knowledge.  I'm hoping that it was just some problems with your previous 
kernel, but who knows?

Once again, I'm glad to hear that things are working for you now.
