1. It was committed to Patrick's repository coming up to a week ago 
now.  It works, but only for the first tuner.  The second tuner will not 
receive a lock.  Patrick is aware of this and I'm sure he'll find a fix 

2. This list is the best place to look, and watch for Patrick's posts.  
In fact, search for his post within the last week where he talks about 
committing it, and everyone else talks about testing it and finding out 
these problems.

I still have reception problems on one TV channel using the card (ABC 
Melbourne) but other channels seem to be OK.  This may be a modulation 
issue or it may be a reception issue - but I've never had any problems 
receiving ABC before, so I am thinking it may be something else.  I just 
haven't had the time to check it out in too much detail yet.
