[linux-dvb] Re: The status of my Frontend doesn' t get better...
On Astra, I'm locking OK on a upper range frequency.
We are using a quad-LNB with a switch. I tried to plug directly the DVB
card onto the right cable (14V, no 22KHz) and I ran into the same error status.
Is this test significant as for the power of the card ? No Disecq needed in
that case, right ?
If the card can't give away the right power, is there a solution (Disecq
amplifier ?) ?
I'll try to use the loop-thru ouput (HF signal) of a set top box (tuned on
the frequency I'm wanting) on the input of my card... (I guess the STB will
take care of the Disecq stuff).
Thanks for your help,
