Cloned latest hg from

http://linuxtv.org/hg/~pb/v4l-dvb/

Used latest firmware...

So far so good :) full MUX streaming with the dvbstreamer software works 
a treat, no "mt2060 I2C write failed", or any of the old read failed 
messages. I can happily stream and watch with vlc remotely as well as 
tune while streaming is running. Front end status also appears to report 
correctly.

Local playback with xine appears fine, just as before.

Will report back on reliability over time. Thank you!
