Sorry, guess I should have said that I am now using the RecentPosts() code from ForumHolder.

function NewPosts($limit = null, $lastVisit = null,
                                     $lastPostID = null) {
         $filter = "";

            $lastVisit = @date('Y-m-d H:i:s', $lastVisit);

         $lastPostID = (int)$lastPostID;
         if($lastPostID > 0)
            $filter .= "ID > $lastPostID";

         if($lastVisit) {
            if($lastPostID > 0)
               $filter .= " AND ";

            $filter .= "Created > '$lastVisit'";

         return DataObject::get("Post", $filter, "Created DESC", "", 8);

you might just like to comment out each line or whole chunks to see what is actually causing the error / see if you could get it to work with all the $filter stuff commented out. Cut out as much as you can to get it to work then work backwards by adding bits back and seeing when it breaks
