    This is not working on my Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit AMD system. It will install, but it crashes during initialization. It hangs for about 15 seconds and disappears. Watching HTOP it shows it using about 100% of my CPU during that time, before the crash. The developers may want to take a look at this application on Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.

    This app is problematic on 64 bit machines. Hangs when changing channels for example, the only recourse is to kill the process…
