[linux-dvb] Garbled video/audio from TwinHan DVB-C card

After installing my new DVB-C card (TwinHan Cab-CI), compiling a custom
2.6.14 kernel with DVB support, I get only garbled audio/video from the
driver. I have tested on a FTA channel and I have no problem with this
channel when using WinXP (on the same machine).

I have compiled dvb-apps from CVS and channel scanning and tuning works fine.

An example of the garbled output can be found on the following URL:
(generated with: dvbstream -o -n 60 -ps -c 0 -qam 64 -v 517 -a 660  >

The output looks similar when played directly with mplayer or xine, e.g
# mplayer - < /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0
# xine http://bjerkeset.com/DVB/twinhan.mpeg

Output from dmesg:

Does anyone know what can be the cause of a problem like this? I found a
thread in the mailinglist archive that suggests it should be possible to
get this card working:

Thanks in advance for any help
