[linux-dvb] Tuning doesn't work with Wideview driver

Forget everything I said, I finally noticed that the antenna cable wasn't 
attached to the wall connector, so it wasn't possible to tune anything! I'm  
feeling really idiot now... :-)

Well, at least the stick is working, and I'm not experiencing any problem with 
other USB devices like Benjamin reported. Perhaps it's a kernel version 
issue, I'm using 2.6.15 right now, with Ubuntu Dapper.

Thanks everyone and, in the future, I promise to double-check all connections 
before asking for help :-)
