Hi,

I try to use a new receiver (Hauppage WinTV-Duet, a dual dvb-t usb 
receiver) but it doesn't work. When I start vdr, I can see them in vdr :

vdr: [16411] new device number 3
vdr: [16436] section handler thread started (pid=16411, tid=16436, prio=low)
vdr: [16411] frontend 2/0 provides DVB-T with QPSK,QAM16,QAM64 ("DiBcom 
7000PC")
vdr: [16411] probing /dev/dvb/adapter3/frontend0
vdr: [16411] creating cDvbDevice
vdr: [16411] new device number 4
vdr: [16439] section handler thread started (pid=16411, tid=16439, prio=low)
vdr: [16438] tuner on frontend 2/0 thread started (pid=16411, tid=16438, 
prio=high)
vdr: [16411] frontend 3/0 provides DVB-T with QPSK,QAM16,QAM64 ("DiBcom 
7000PC")

but when I try to use one of them, vdr complains with the following 
message :

vdr: [16438] frontend 2/0 timed out while tuning to channel 7, tp 562 
(same message for the second adapter)

I can see the green led switching on (witch means vdr access the 
adapter) but only for a few seconds before the above message. vdr tries 
again without success. There is no more log with loglevel 3.

I tried manually and everything works :

tzap  -a 2 -r -c ~/tzap.chan "France 2"
using '/dev/dvb/adapter2/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter2/demux0'
reading channels from file '/root/tzap.chan'
tuning to 586000000 Hz
video pid 0x0078, audio pid 0x0082
status 1f | signal ac22 | snr 00d5 | ber 001fffff | unc 0000007d | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal abe6 | snr 00dd | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal abdb | snr 00d8 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal abaa | snr 00e6 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
...

then, I can see the channel with mplayer in /dev/dvb/adapter2/dvr0.

Are there some parameters in vdr to get my adapter working ?

Thanks,

Marc.
