address these questions...I only glanced at the page today

No -- its an interesting tidbit and the wiki pages are for all (end
users ans coders alike).  My only concern was whether that bit was
relevant to the device or not.  As it is, it can certainly stay.

Now that was a bit of a bonehead on my part given that I set up that
section (based on the info you and others have provided).

No problem.  I'm not familiar with the devices ... [nor do I really want
to become more familiar with them given the closest DVB-T transmission
to me is likely some four and a half thousand KM away :D ] ... hence,
I'm hoping to prompt those who ARE familiar (and know to which devices
Patrick was referring) can add the appropriate info.

Cheers (and thanks for the good work in the wiki)
