hi,
my lifeview duo finally tunes a frequency that previously couldn't be 
received, although
it's full of errors.
Unfortunately the 2 VHF frequencies available here, that incidentally 
seem to be the ones
transmitting with the highest power and lowest error rate, can't be 
tuned at all (nor they were
previously).

Did I ever tell you that your drivers work *much* better than the ones 
for windows shipped
with the card? :)
Using the card in windows is impossible, but in linux it's a totally 
different story (although
this card seems to be extremely weak).

Thanks,

    Nico
