Hmm, I don't know what could be going wrong.

Why did you need a new firmware revision?

I have no xp drivers, but spying on the current flash.exe from 20050727
gives something like:

Wrong  ASUS_Tiger_Board Sub-Vender ID!
Wrong 7134D Board_ID : 0x4857, Need to Re-Flash EEPROM...
Correct 7134D Board_ID : 0x4862 you have No need to flash eeprom.

This reads like the 0x4862 subdevice has no need to update.
The Asus site states:

Just in case, mine is unchanged and is

DVB: registering new adapter (saa7133[2]).
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Philips TDA10046H DVB-T)...
tda1004x: setting up plls for 48MHz sampling clock
tda1004x: found firmware revision 26 -- ok
tda1004x: setting up plls for 48MHz sampling clock
tda1004x: found firmware revision 26 -- ok
tda1004x: setting up plls for 48MHz sampling clock
tda1004x: found firmware revision 26 -- ok

Else I remember only a report from Nico on a different tda8275a device,
that he had to change to FEC_AUTO in order to get VHF, caused by
incorrect config file and some problems with 794 and 802MHz.

Just checked with a very recent mercurial snapshot and on mine
everything works like expected. (old 2.6.14-rc5-git4 is running on FC3)

BTW, I was using dvbscan of dvb-apps cvs if it should make a difference.

Sorry,

Hermann
