All the sound glitches have gone, the picture is almost perfect (a few
blocks occasionally but probably caused
by interference). Many thanks Antti.

I thought I'd push my luck and see if the dual tuner support worked
with the new driver, it seems to
as the first frontend is working just as well as in single mode now,
but no frontend device is appearing for
the second tuner so I can't test it.

Thanks again,
