Do you have other signals than QAM128 to test with?

Hmm, would it be helpful if you got an CableStar2? (I think so) If you 
want to I could provide you with a card... (at least temporary).

If you are interested, please send me your postal address privately.

Johannes, would it be OK, if the CableStar2 stv0297-driver remains one or 
two weeks in CVS (maybe we even get some additional test results)? Maybe 
until Risto was able to merge both drivers or so?
