Hmmm might give this a shot tommorow. But is it possible revert back to default kernel if I run into problems, without needing a reflash. Or would a simple uninstall return things to normal?

Code:
WARNING!===============WARNING!===============WARNING!
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/i2c-tools_3.0.2-1maemo2_armel.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/include/linux/i2c-dev.h', which is also in package linux-kernel-headers
Errors were encountered while processing:
 /var/cache/apt/archives/i2c-tools_3.0.2-1maemo2_armel.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Any ideas? Probably a result of all the garbage I've installed...

It's pretty straightforward:
-Install hostmode-gui
-Reboot
-Connect your device
-Open h-e-n
-Click High Speed hostmode
-Set VBUS boost on
-Click enumerate
-Click mount

Does someone have a USB DVB-T stick laying around to test?
I bet they would require more power than 200mA.
It would require a kernel with the complete v4l stack and varioud dvb drivers.
But wouldnt it be awesome to install CCcam and share your local payTV card with your phone over 3G and watch tv anywhere

I already stream it over ORB, but that would be pretty awesome :P

Alright solved my problem, was under the impression linux-kernel-headers was a needed package, but must be remnants of my SDK install.

Now to try out a USB or something...

Well no luck so far, tried two seperate USB sticks. /dev/sda1 is present for both, but nothing gets mounted and trying to mount from term just freezes the terminal...

yes I would like that also.
The first step would be to get a DVB-T stick working.
One of the smallest is also supposed to have "Very low power consumption" according to the site: the PCTV Picostick
Picostick
Don't know if it is low enough to work with 200mA limitation.

I have one and it is working perfectly fine on Ubuntu using the driver and firmware found in this location:
Kernellabs Picostick V4L driver and firmware

I use the picostick with my netbook running linux Mint to watch Digitenne channels (a conax encrypted paid tv service in the Netherlands over DVB-T). I use my digitenne smartcard in a smargo smartreader+ using OScam as a key server, TVheadend as the decryption software and xbmc as the player.
It works pretty well, but the reception of the picostick isn't great when inside buildings using the small antenna connected directly to the USB adapter. (the officially supported Anysee E30 plus dvbt receiver only support the cardreader in windows, this is my linux supported alternative )

I would love to get the picostick working on the N900! But getting the other software to run on the n900 in order to watch encrypted DVBT broadcasts would seem a long way off.

I kinda dreamed of a thread like this one, and now its there

I will get the adapter as soon as possible and give it a try with several different devices, looks promising so far. Though ARM compatible drivers will be an issue...

The idea with the DVB-T stick is nice, but I could imagine also a lot of other possible combinations. Are USB Hubs supported by the way (With active power)?

@MohammadAG: I noticied that my N900 doesn't goes below 500MHz anymore, though when I OC it to 900MHz it still goes down to 500MHz. So they basically avoid only the 250MHz frequency while it is charging.
