Hi,

I have a Twinhan PCI dvb-t (VP3021) card.
It was working perfectly for quite a few months although I've never really
used it *that* much (trying to get mythTV working)
Now it's just... stopped. It won't tune or scan.
Can somebody help me diagnose why it's stoppped? I've *just* go mythTV
working after MONTHS of trying and this is heartbreaking!!

I use Ubuntu Dapper and now the output from
scan -a /dev/dvb/adaptor0 -v -u
/usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-t/uk-Rowridge

is

>>> tune to:
489833333:INVERSION_AUTO:BANDWIDTH_8_MHZ:FEC_3_4:FEC_NONE:QAM_16:TRANSMISSION_MODE_2K:GUARD_INTERVAL_1_32:HIERARCHY_NONE

>>> tuning status == 0x00
[repeats]
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!

(tuning failed)
>>> tuning status == 0x00
[repeats]
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!
ERROR: initial tuning failed

Here is some stuff from dmesg (I think this is all the DVB related bits)
At the end of the email is lsmod

Many Thanks in Advance,

James.
