Like I mentioned befora, I'm having the same kind of problem. My primary
card (Fujitsu-Siemens DVB-C) doesn't receive QAM128 channels at
particular frequencies very well but I'd like to keep it because of the
quality RGB output.

Tried both of these hacks to disable it's use as a receiver but with a
disapppointment. Both of them cause ARM crashes/errors on the primary
card (otherwise, the funtional part works ok and as expected):

dvb-ttpci: __av7110_send_fw_cmd(): timeout waiting for COMMAND idle
dvb-ttpci: av7110_send_fw_cmd(): av7110_send_fw_cmd error -110
dvb-ttpci: av7110_fw_cmd error -110
