You can do that. In fact the application should do a DVBFE_GET_INFO. This will query
the capability of that specific driver. Based on the driver capabilities, issue a tuning
request. That way a tune will be attempted only on the capable device.

It is a simple check, though.

Reinhard,

The patched version doesn't look at the device capability flags, before issuing a tune ?
Or is something else wrong/missing ?

Manu
