[linux-dvb] Newbie problem : need infos on API
I have a linux box (RH 7.1/ kernel 2.4.10 / PIII 450 MHz / 128 Mo RAM).
I'm using an Hauppauge winTV DVB-S (second release) with the latest driver.
I'm trying to tune on hotbird : I simply can't : The frontend says it has

I tried to understand the secCmdSequence command.
scmd.u.diseqc.addr = 0x10; Why 0x10 ?
scmd.u.diseqc.cmd = 0x38; Why 0x38 ?
scmd.u.diseqc.numParams = 1;
scmd.u.diseqc.params = 0xF0 | ((nr * 4) & 0x0F) | What does
'nr' relates to in the real world ?
(scmds.continuousTone == SEC_TONE_ON ? 1 : 0) |
(scmds.voltage==SEC_VOLTAGE_18 ? 2 : 0);
I'm trying to tune on :
PID 6450 (interactive service data PID) for 2 weeks and I'm getting
