[linux-dvb] Freecom DVB-T Stick problems

Hello,

I've recently got two of these sticks with the ID 0x14aa/0x0225 before
loading the firmware.

Now the firmware and latest cvs is installed and the module is loaded
into my gentoo 2.6.18 kernel and seems to load o.k.

Now trying a dvbscan uk-Winterhill I get this....

scanning uk-WinterHill
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 754166670 0 3 9 1 0 0 0
>>> tune to:
754166670:INVERSION_AUTO:BANDWIDTH_8_MHZ:FEC_3_4:FEC_AUTO:QAM_16:TRANSMISSION_MODE_2K:GUARD_INTERVAL_1_32:HIERARCHY_NONE
WARNING: filter timeout pid 0x0011
WARNING: filter timeout pid 0x0000
WARNING: filter timeout pid 0x0010
dumping lists (0 services)
Done.

Yet, with dvbsnoop I'm getting a confirmed lock....

cycle: 32946  d_time: 0.002 s  Sig: 20303  SNR: 49087  BER: 0  UBLK: 0
Stat: 0x1f [SIG CARR VIT SYNC LOCK ]

I've got two of these and they both do the same thing, so I don't
suspect faulty hardware.

Has anyone had any luck with these and have any pointers that I could
try ??

Thanks,

Alan.
