[linux-dvb] HVR-3000: fixed by downgrading kernel, any ~stoth/hvr3000 patches for >2.6.18 kernels?

Well, it looks like either the kernel (stock FC6 2.6.20) or the driver itself 
is broken. Reverting to 2.6.18 (with minor patches to the r8169 Ethernet 
driver source) and installing Steve Toth's hvr3000 driver has enabled most of 
the card's features. The analogue TV tuner isn't working properly (but that 
might be a MythTV thing) but DVB-T works fine. I'm off to test DVB-S in a few 

To get this working, I've had to build a 2.6.18 kernel for Mythdora 4, 
reinstall the ATI Fglrx drivers (from the ATI package, not an RPM), rebuild 
LIRC, and rebuild IVTV. Actually, scrub that last part, I still haven't 
managed to rebuild the IVTV RPM from the AtRPMs source. But the rest of it 
seems to work...

Does anyone know if any *working* patches exist to get Steve Toth's HVR-3000 
driver (currently in hg under ~stoth/hvr3000) working on newer kernels? I got 
it to compile fairly well, it just didn't do much after it was compiled...
