 Hello - first time poster here.  I'm running Ubuntu Hardy, stock kernel
2.6.24-19-generic.  Compiled the v4l tree from repository and installed the
modules.  Also grabbed firmware found on the dvb-wiki page  Analog tuning
works.  Trying to run dvbscan or scan results in either no channels found or
a hang on the attempt to tune the first channel.

Output of dmesg contains errors like this:

Here's the relevant lspci -vvnn output for the card:

I've got Time Warner cable, so I'm trying to pick up the QAM stations.  So
far no luck.  If anyone can shed any light, it would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
