The old Compro refuses to lie down & die, doesn't it!

I'll contact dtor_core at ameritech.net as suggested in the dmesg.

Hartmut, Thanks for the explanation of the tuner error.

James, I had my remote going for a short time, and I was concentrating on other things - I didn't notice the repeated button. I don't know if I had the problem or not. James - what kernel are you using, and are you building your own dvb modules or did they come with the kernel?
