Can you please test the patches from here. These patches have not gone 
into CVS and is still there in my private repo for testing..
You can choose the .gz or .bz2 buttons to download the tarballs instead 
of patches. For more instructions follow the v4l-dvb HOWTO at the Wiki

The changeset is here at,


Please do let know how it works out.

the dst module now takes in an additional module parameter dst_algo. The 
default algo is set to H/W (1). Since the hw_algo stuff is not yet 
complete, i would suggest that you use the dst_algo=0 module option to 
make sure.

It would be nice to receive feedback on what happens with dst_algo=1 
option too.
