Yes, exactly the same... The only difference is that now I know what 
channels to try using azap because I already have channel tables from 
the other board.

Only way of it fixing Alan's problem is if your patch touches analog 
tuner code... As I stated in a previous email, dvb is disabled on Alan's 
installation... (see cx88-cards.c, in current cvs, line 780) He is not 
running cx88-dvb, and even if he is, the code for fusionhdtv5 is disabled.
