hi

i noticed some tuning and stability problems with kernels -gt 2.6.16 and
my budget-card "Terratec Cinergy 1200 DVB-T" (frontend "Philips
TDA10046H").

googling, reading, reading, playing around, etc. i came to the idea to
check the firmware.

studying the script "get_dvb_firmware" and following the links i see
that the "provider" of the firmware holds a newer one (version 219g),
then mentioned in the script.

after playing/scaning/zapping the tv stations with the new firmware i
get the impression that all went quicker and with out any problems
(stability/tuning).

questions:

"how long" will it go all quicker and "proper" playing with the new
firmware not mentioned in the script ???
means: is it possible that my new "pleasure" is only from a short nature
leading definitely to the distress to spent some money on a new card ?

if not, should that script be changed ?

any idea's ?

tia
