Nick-

Please, grab the latest copy of video4linux cvs and apply your changes 
to the code there and test.  If everything works properly, you can 
generate a patch by issuing the command:

cvs diff -up > nick.patch

Then, please email the patch to Video4Linux Mailing List 
<video4linux-list at redhat.com> ... The code that you're altering is 
maintained by v4l... not the dvb folks.  (cc added)
