Well, what should I talk about it? I don't have a DVB-T device
for testing and even if I had one, I live in a DVB-S only area in
Germany.

And furthermore, I was only involved in the multiproto
development as a tester. I don't know much about the internals.
The DVB-S2 port of VDR was contributed by Marco Schlüßler and I
only redistribute it to protect users form the pain to merge two
patchsets by hand.

Well, both Manu and Marco wrote that the current multiproto tree
provides an emulation layer which allows to access drivers which
only provide the old API via the new API.

So it seems to me that either the emulation layer has a bug for
DVB-T or the patched VDR passes incorrect data to the new API.

I'm sorry that I cannot help you in this regard.

Bye.
