See above, a powerdown for 20 seconds, followed by a reboot to, and tvtime works just fine.

Here is the lsmod output for this boot:

Pardon the wrapping of the last line in mid-word.

Now, the difference that I can see is that I cannot build a 2.6.15-rc2
without the nxt200x stuffs without depmod spitting out a whole menu of
squawks about dvb_stuffs.

This card apparently doesn't need the nxt2000x stuffs, so how do I go
about building a working 2.6.15-rc2 kernel without it?

.configs available on request.
