First of all: Thanks a lot for all the support.

<may-be-skipped>
But please be a little bit patient - not enough spare time after work (lots
 of ugly, boring budget issues, workshops and powerpoint drawing for 
management at the moment... :-(((

All changes are located in av7110.c, is this correct?

Fortunately I have the hardware and tested your changes :-)

Now I can get a lock on several channels. A list of these channels is added
 at the end of this message. With the last three (#227 - #229, added manually
 to my channels.conf) I get video and sound. Only blackness and silence at
 the others. (Btw. I killed every szap call after 3 seconds. Maybe I could
 get some more channels if I had waited longer.)

btw: Running the Windows TV watching program shipped with the card  sets 
14/19V, not 13/18V as you do in lnbp21_set_voltage(). Maybe we should also 
set register 0x08 to 0x54/0x5C (=14/19V) instead of 0x44/0x4C (=13/18V)? May 
concern installations with considerable cable lengths.

There's no tech spec shipped with the card. Any idea where to find one? I'm 
tired of googling for now.

Are the pictures at Huberts website any help (click on thumbnails)?

Look at Pic #2:
- there is a very thin wire from pin 5 (EXTM) leading to the gap between the
two tin-solder points (and probably connected to them)
- pin 14 (DSQIN) doesn't seem to by connected.

There seems to be no difference if I set the TEN-bit (DSQIN disabled by 
writing 0x64 or 0x6c instead of 0x44 or 0x4c).

Ok, what next?


Here the channels on which I got a lock with szap:
