[linux-dvb] kaffeine: Invalid section length or timeout

I'm having tuning problems with my nova-t 500 and kaffeine.

While doing tuning with AUTO and both positive and negative offsets
checked, kaffeine reports "Invalid section length or timeout". I'm
wondering what that means? Kaffeine doesn't report any channels even
though it locks on the signal.

I'm trying to tune to BBC at 505833 khz (the official frequency), but
for some reason, i'm receiving at 506000 instead. I'm wondering if this
is what might be causing the errors, since there might be a discrepancy
between what frequency kaffeine locks on and the transponder frequency
data?

Here's some log output from kaffeine;

Using DVB device 0:0 "DiBcom 3000MC/P"
tuning DVB-T to 505833000 Hz <-- official frequency, but no lock
