[linux-dvb] Tuning problem
first something general about DVB-C problems mentiond before the
I had a look at the driver and the applications last week.
The DVB-C driver turned out to have no problem. But there was a bug in
the libdvb which prevented old config files from being used
correctly. That's why ntuxzap did not tune correctly. But this is
fixed now and works fine.
I can only test DVB-C with the Siemens DVB-C card. People with the
Technotrend DVB-C card or the Nova DVB-C card still might have
problems. Sorry, I cannot help you with this.

Tuning is independent of the firmware for DVB-C (in DVB-S the firmware
handles DiSEqC). Still it would be helpful to know what it said.

They should at least be able to tell you what modulation they
use, if they use spectrum inversion, etc.
Since the TT software also fails maybe they are using some kind of
