DVB playback with Kaffeine hasn't been working for me since 0.8.5, for
some reason it bombs out on me with an X Server error. Since i don't
feel like debugging it and I'm more a GTK/Gnome user anyway, i stopped
using it and wrote my own little DVB app.

It's called Typhony, i put it on the website today:

It doesn't have all the features Kaffeine has, but it's good enough for me.

If you prefer to use Kaffeine you can portdowngrade Kaffeine to version 0.8.4
or try to debug it yourself.
