I'm having the same problem. My Fujitsu-Siemens DVB-C doesn't like the
QAM128 signals broadcasted here but my other card, TechnoTrend FF, works
fine. I still would like to continue using FuSi as the primary device
because of it's RGB output.

That would nice to have. I tried to bind all channels to the second card
in channels.conf - no luck. The second card tuned correctly to all the
channels and services but the primary card showed no picture at all. So
something wrong with transfer mode when trying to use it like this.
