Hi Rainer,

I have installed newest kernel, and now my linux could detect the dvb card.
But when i tried to tune to dvb freq/dvb mpe, i just get FE_HAS Carrier
but never get LOCK.
Thereis something wrong with me ?
I use dvbtune version 0.5.
And I also use C-Band frequency.
Originally freq C-BAND is 3920, so I use 1230 Khz (after I calculate of
local oscillator of C-BAND freq, 5150 Khz). Our satellite is PAS 8.
Anyone here could help me to resolve this ?.

Thanks.

Johan
