Up and running here, just.  Sort of.

Mixed results - the first recording was rather glitchy (would be perfect
for 30 seconds then lots of artefacts, video freezes and audio cutting in
and out).

Second recording attempt using live TV (MythTV) would not get a lock. 
Signal strength jumps up and down wildly.

Third recording MythTV never starts writing the recording to disk (I
presume it did not have a lock).  This is using tuner #2 on the card.

Fourth recording seems to work OK at the moment (just started).  This is
using tuner #1 on the card.  Haven't tried playing it back yet but at
least it has lock.

Signal is being fed via loop-thru on an Airstar2, the signal is >80% on
the Airstar2 and has never been a problem.

I will report back more once I get a chance to experiment more (I have
another system here with another Nova-T-500 that I will test too).
