I'm using it with MythTV 0.18.1....It's possible (but I'm not certain) that perhaps Myth isn't closing the DVB portion before switching...

I JUST thought of a possible fix - there's a setting to "Open DVB card on-demand"...I'm gonna try that when I go home tonight, and report if that fixes it...If it does, never mind. ;-)

Thanks for the help.
