I saw same topic on the list. Did anyone had solved the problem with nova-s
plus not locking. I use 2.6.24 and latest HG tree and my other cx88 base
card works just fine but nova-s plus shows strenght of 98% but signal
noise goes up and down and there is no lock on it. It Works just fine  with
other cards. I saw  this patch does it realy disable the voltage protection
on nova-s?
Are there any patches that I can test get my  nova-s working ?
