Ok, the Dish is working. My tv card, a pcHDTV-3000, worked less than 5
minutes before I rebooted to 2.6.15-rc2 from, and now it
doesn't even when booted back to These were not powerdown
reboots so that may have a bearing on this.

That leaves two possibilities.
1) The card has died (doubtfull)
2) something in the i2c probing for 2.6.15-rc2 put it into some odd
mode, from which tvtime seems unable to recover from.

I'd turned on the nxt-200x stuff and have now turned it off, which was
the only diff in an lsmod listing between the boots. If that module
does something to the card as it inits, how can I undo that?

Comments anyone?
