I have some changes in the code that makes locking faster on Twinhan, couple
of other modifications are also there, along with CA.
I will post out once things are settled down a bit.
Regarding the Terrestrial cards with Twinhan they have the Philips tuners
rather than LG on the newer cards. I'm talking about the VP-3040 card, that
comes with an addon CA daughterboard. Signal quality has to better on that
compared to the VP-3020/3021.
