Hmm, good to hear it's possible to make it work.  The message appears in
'messages', repeatedly: about once per second.  The card seems to be
seated OK: it works or seems to work until the message starts.  The rest
of the machine seems OK, as does the other card: a FlyDVB-T Duo.  I'm
using the latest Mythbuntu, can't remember which kernel and I'm not next
to the machine atm.  (I changed from Mythdora 4 which had the same
problem but annoyingly installed all of Gnome)

The kernel did get updated to the latest so I hope I've got the latest
driver from the kernel tree: I'm just wondering if this has been fixed
in Mercurial and I should download the source.  The messages I found
were from either March or June '07 and talked about short or silent i2c
buses on saa7134s - does this ring a bell with anyone?

In hope,

Rob Clive
