   Its working for me which (strange I thought I'd tried
this module after looking up lr306 on the net). It has
one too many composite configured and I haven't checked
the analogue audio, but I get a picture in tvtime
and dvb working in kaxtv and switching beween the
two is mostly fine. (Still having trouble with the mythtv
scan). I'll play with it some more tomorrow (check
audio with some mencoder recordings).
