You're welcome.

I'm trying this to build with this patch right now. No errors,
although I did see it building a cx88-blackbird.o, which I've ndi what
that is. Now the acid test, does tvtime work again, or do I have to do
a powerdown reset and reboot to to restore it. Reboot to
2.6.15-rc2-patched comeing up.

Rebooted to this patch. Tvtime now has very faint sound, like the
station is 200 miles away, and no video. Blue screen even if signal
detection is turned off. Its like the antenna input has been
disconnected. The dish receiver in use here is banging it with nearly
65,000 u-volts of signal, so some is leaking thru.

Now, to see if a simple reboot to fixes it, or if I have to do
the full powerdown again. brb.
