Well, I'm afraid it doesn't look so good after all.
Apparently this breaks things for the "TechniSat AirStar 2" DVB-T card, which seems
to have the same subsystem ID of 0x13D02103 (are you sure you got the ID right?).
Since the "TechniSat AirStar 2" obviously uses the full range of 0x0000...0xFFFF for
its signal value, I can't limit it to 0x4925 for that ID. Besides, if your card
reports 0x4925, there's a high probability that the frontend actually uses the
range 0x0000...0xFFFF and you just got a low signal. Any chance that could be the case?

So I'll have to revoke this change for version 2.1.3.
