I have exactly the same problem with my Air2PC.  I am using 2.6.11 with
dvb-kernel from cvs (very recent).  The driver loads and seems to
function correctly.  I can use azap to tune to various channels using
the channels.conf-qam file and I get FE_HAS_LOCK back from azap.  I have
tried azap with and without the -r option. I know these are real
channels because my TV has a built-in QAM tuner and I can view those
channels on my TV using the digital tuner.  However, dvbstream and
dvbscan just hang and I can't capture by catting dvr0.  

I guess I'll just keep looking for updates to the dvb-kernel modules and
monitoring the list, unless someone has a suggestion?
