No, it's nowhere specified that the driver has to set any default
values. It's up to the application to set the correct tuning parameters.
Please fix vdr and dvbstream to use complete channel lists with all
The initial tuning of the driver was a 'debug feature', but slowly I
consider it as a very evil thing because all applications are buggy
right now, AFAIK only the szap, czap, tzap examples are using the
correct tuning sequence. Please take a look into this code.
