Initially I tried the latest dvb sources on my 2.6.22 Gutsy kernel but
didn't have any luck with it, the latest rc kernel was my last resort.

Do you have the md5sum for that file? I'm currently using the one posted here:

(under test firmware)

md5sum is 5878ebfcba2d8deb90b9120eb89b02da

I was lucky to get 26 hours! My setup is a Dell Inspiron AMD based
box, a PVR350 and the Nova500. Quite often the card would disconnect
within minutes of boot and several hours at best. I've taken it out
now and I'm now using a Nova-T and the PVR350 without any issues.
