I tried the above but it did not work, so I flushed out my current
kernel and modules and restored it to a default Debian state and rebuild
the af9015 system as described in my attachment.
The device kind of works now (yes :-p), with normal passive antennas I
can find signals, however with my kind of expensive active antenna it
does not find anything... I can also tune the signal with totem-xine
dvb, mplayer is not able to tune the signal... I have no idea why, i
tried different timeout and cache settings.
Also the remote does not work, when the device is connected during boot
nu input device is created. When the device is insert after a complete
boot. the input device is created, but it is not working. I scanned the
event with irrecord without any result...
Playing dvb://Nederland 1(Digitenne).
dvb_tune Freq: 722000000
Not able to lock to the signal on the given frequency, timeout: 1
dvb_tune, TUNING FAILED
ERROR, COULDN'T SET CHANNEL 0: Failed to open dvb://Nederland 1(Digitenne).
