Hi Steven.

Thanks for your willingness to look into my concern. I was unable to 
find any sign of memory usage increase with dvbstream, actually it 
stayed a rock steady 144kb there seems to be some sort of randomness to 
the problem somewhere in the software stack.

Thanks to all who developed the CX23880 driver
