WinTV Go xx88 chipset and 2.6 kernel

I am about to upgrade to the latest version of my distro (2.6 kernel). Has anyone had any luck getting their WinTV Go xx88 chipset TV cards to work yet? It was alleged that these cards would work under 2.6.x

I am happy to report that I now have this card working under mandrake10 with 2.6.3-7 kernel. The solution to my long term prob was I needed to modprobe cx8800 first.

Didn't have much luck with xawtv so i tried TVTime. Once I'd set the settings for my region etc and scanned the TV channels it started working. I know many people have had probs getting this card to work so feel free to PM me if you want to check settings etc.
