   Got this card delivered on Monday, I had a vanilla 2.6.12
tarball from kernel.org, applied the patch listed for 2.6.12
at
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Kworld_V-Stream_Xpert_DVB-T/Software_%26_Patch

I've currently got the digital tv working fine under myth tv

I've got inserted finding it though).
