I pleased to report that your patch works perfect for me on kernel 2.6.14.
Installing mercurial from source was nice and easy too.
I've now got mythtv running with a nova-t as well as this 300i.

I've had a 300i for over a year. I've lost count of the people I've told never to buy pinnacle hardware, 'coz it never worked for me.
