I just realized, there IS an alternative to cvs... You can use the 
VIEWCVS web interface to download a tarball of the current CVS snapshot.

http://linuxtv.org/cvs.php

You will have to get tarballs from both video4linux and dvb-kernel cvs, 
and expand them both in the same level directory.  I'm not going to give 
step-by-step instructions here... Please see the howto.

This is very easy to do, but it is *much* easier to just use cvs the 
normal way and follow the instructions in the howto.

Cheers,
