Hi.

My problem seems quite similar to this one:
http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2005-September/004669.html

In short, I've got the latest CVS code, compiled it against the stock 
2.6.13, and loaded the saa7134-dvb module:
(My Linux flavour is Breezy Badger, by the way)

If I then run tzap (with the right channels.conf file) I get this:

> tda1004x: found firmware revision 23 -- ok


and this to STDOUT:using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and 
'/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'

I just bought a new antenna, thinking perhaps it was just bad signal, 
but there's no change at all. Am I missing a tuner in the kernel?

Thanks in advance for any tips.

Nick.
