[Nelug] DVB MythTV, Radio

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone else is using a DVB card at all?

I have a "Twinhan Magic Box" - this is a USB DVB-T receiver... I have it
working quite well under Gentoo Linux, only problem being that I have to
re-plug it, then restart the mythbackend. "dmesg" shows that the card
has been initialised, but myth won't use it until it's been re-plugged
and mythbackend restarted (This sometimes locks up the PC).

The problem aside, I was really looking for some application that would
let me listen to the digital radio channels on FreeView, or xmms plugin
or something... Does anyone know of a good application?

I found xmms-dvb-0.5.0, but this only supports DVB-S (Satellite cards),
and it's not that friendly...

I can use a combination of tzap and mplayer, but this is a bit of a pain!

Any ideas
