I get semi random glitches in the recordings that the Satix doesn't get also my Nova S+ (before it packed up last week) doesn't get the glitches.
It's significantly better since the upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04, even though I was running 2.6.33 kernel on 9.04 and latest v4l drivers.

My next debugging step will be to ditch my Nova T500 for a while, after some reading on the linux-media list it seems this driver doesn't play nicely with busy interrupts and with three tuner cards and six disks this machine is busy.

Sorry for the slow reply.
