hi dave

it's crazy:
as i tried it just right now i get the same log entries:
see below.

this is the complete log: 
here i test dvb tuning problems with the old kernel (firmware 217g):

Aug 26 01:41:56 obelix kernel: Linux version 2.6.16-1.2133_FC5 (brewbuilder at hs20-bc2-2.build.redhat.com) (gcc version 4.1.1 20060525 (Red Hat 4.1.1-1)) #1 Tue Jun 6 00:52:14 EDT 2006

....

trying to tune to stations(with no luck):

...

hence i tried the new firmware (219g)
(i definitivly know the time, cause i saved the firmware in a another directory also. 

[---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ls -l:  
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    24478 Aug 26 02:53 219g-dvb-fe-tda10046.fw
 
the trailing 219g- is only to distinguish it from 217g- (same sized files)

everything okay and i wrote my mail sended to the list at 4:54 AM with my results/questitions 



this is from right now (1. bootloader entry was still 2.6.16)

????????????????????

now i'm a little bit confused.

any BIG IDEA's ?

or should i get a date with my therapist ?
