Hello,

Any current vdr doesn't respect valid dvb device frequency ranges.
Here on a EPG-Scan it's generate many messages on syslog, like :

DVB: adapter 0 frontend 0 frequency 177500000 out of range
(470000000..860000000)
DVB: adapter 0 frontend 0 frequency 177500000 out of range
(470000000..860000000)
DVB: adapter 0 frontend 0 frequency 177500000 out of range
(470000000..860000000)


Any of my three DVB-T devices have different frequency ranges,
and the primary device can't receive VHF-channels.

frontend 0:0 frequency range 470000000..860000000
frontend 1:0 frequency range  51000000..858000000
frontend 2:0 frequency range 177000000..858000000


Therefore i attach a simple patch to check provided frequency ranges of
used dvb-t device driver.
