[linux-dvb] Any progress on TT DVB-C1500 w/ QAM128?

Hi all,

The new(ish) TT DVB-C 1500 (stv0297 frontend) is still (as of current
CVS) problematic when tuning to QAM128 channels. Czap can usually lock
onto a channel after a few tries, but real apps such as Mplayer and
MythTV seem to usually lose their patience waiting for a lock. I
assume this is related to the various threads in July and August
concerning timeouts etc.

I can get results with Mplayer about one try in three, but never with
MythTV. An older TT budget card (DVB-C 1.0, with VES1820 frontend)
works fine.

Has any progress been made (by integrating the alternate stv0297
driver, for instance)? I'll gladly test any patches and provide any
data if necessary.
