[linux-dvb] Freecom DVB-T USB with 14aa:0225 - one physical device but loaded twice

I get similar problems on the same card (14aa:0225 - Feb 06 version from
memory?). I cannot tune however, on either frontend. Others have this
card working fine, though. Possibly something to do with our hardware?
[I have no idea at all.] I am using an Athlon XP on a Asus A7V600
motherboard (in the UK).

Regards,

Benjie.
