Ok, done some initial testing.

- Uninstalled old build, rebooted,  installed new build and rebooted
- /dev/dvb/adaptor0 created
- Tunes and play's back *really* well, I tested with Kaffeine - 
excellent reception, no dropouts or sounds squeaks that I noticed. 
Tested with HD signals as well. This was only for a few miniutes, I 
haven't had a chance to schedule a full recording, but will test that soon.

I enabled the second tuner and ran into the exactly problems as before 
when trying to tune - kernel crash etc. The machine locked up on 
shutdown and required a hard boot.

Thanks! - Lindsay
