Stephen,

V0.1
	Cold Reset (0ff for 10 second):	No errors from dmesg
							Can tune and watch
channels
	Warm Reset (ie sudo reboot):		Many errors in dmesg
							Can tune and watch
channels
V0.2
	Cold Reset (0ff for 10 second):	No errors from dmesg
							Can tune and watch
channels
	Warm Reset (ie sudo reboot):		Many errors in dmesg
							Tuning fails.
Unable to watch channels

Wrt sudo modprobe cx23885 i2c_scan=1, where are you expecting the output?
Given that the module is already loaded do I need to modify the
modprobe.d/cx23885 file to include the option and then reboot?

With regard to ensuring V0.1 modules are not loaded when using V0.2, the
method I have used is to have two completely different v4l_dvb source
directories and doing a make, sudo make install to use the different
versions.  I have assumed that this will copy the modules over the top of
the old modules.  Please let me know if this is not correct.

If you want me to reboot with new option let me know.

Thanks

Tom
