has anyone tried installing newer v4l-dvb drivers
apt-get install install mercurial build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
make && make install
or as i mentioned above dowloading the newest kernel from http://kernel.org and compiling it youself will also fix this
i for one can say that this used to fix the trouble for me however now in intrepid the stock kernel works fine for me.
