[linux-dvb] dvb trouble with the pinnacle 300i (mt352)

Hi

I recently got a pinnacle 300i analog/digital pci tv card and I've been
trying to get it to work reliably. I can receive all the channels but
the display is full of artifacts and after maybe 10-30 seconds
mplayer(or xine) just cuts out. I've seen a number of threads which have
similar problems with the following:

mt352_read_register: readreg error (reg=1, ret==-5)

showing up in the dmesg output. I've upgraded to the 1.11 firmware using
windows, that helped a lot but not enough. I'm currently running
2.6.11.7 with the latest patch from bytesex
(http://dl.bytesex.org/patches/2.6.11-2/All-2.6.11.diff.gz)

Is this a problem that people are trying to fix or have I just bought a
crap card? I got the pinnacle to replace my Nova-T (which could receive
channels just fine) because it has analog as well.

Thanks, Alex




p.s
lots of dmesg ouput:
