OK, well thanks for your work on the HVR3000 multi-frontend stuff anyway. I 
got it all working in the end (after rebuilding my own kernel RPM and a bunch 
of modules) but playback was awful (mainly because of the lack of Xvideo 
support in the current ATI driver - CPU usage on both cores hit 100% pretty 
quickly and the playback engine started dropping frames). No playback = no PVR...

Oh well, I'll have another go towards the end of the year. Maybe then ATI will 
have sorted themselves out and fixed FGLRX... The kernel downgrade I can live 
with, the lousy video I can't.

I think I can live without DiSEqC - no switches, positioners or other doodads 
here, just a dish, an LNB and some satellite-grade co-ax cable :)
