[linux-dvb] Understanding tzap output

Hi

I have been able to use the dvb drivers for a almost two years with my older 
Nova-t, (902?) however recently having moved house things have got worse.
Sorry if this question is therefore out of date but I would like the answers.


When I Tzap onto a channel most parts look 'ok' signal is ~cccc, SNR ~e000 ber 
is ~1fff and unc is 000


however the status bits keep changing. I see 1f - Ok, 00, 01, 03, 05, 07, 1d - 
not ok, everytime the status is anything other than 1f the FE_HAS_LOCK goes.

What are the meanings of these other status codes?

What is the probable cause of these readings?


Thanks

Matthew
