Hi,

I downloaded the driver from http://kromtek.com/dvb/mantis.tar.bz2 and
have it built against 2.6.19.2 however I'm having a lot of problems.

When trying to drive the tuner the logs fill with:

Feb  1 10:24:03 localhost kernel: mb86a16_read_snr: SNR (Quality) = [2
dB], Level=7 %
Feb  1 10:24:03 localhost kernel: mb86a16_set_fe: freq=1150 Mhz,
symbrt=28125 Ksps

Feb  1 10:24:03 localhost kernel: mb86a16_write: writing to
[0x08],Reg[0x0a],Data[0x3d]
Feb  1 10:24:03 localhost kernel: mb86a16_write: writing to

Feb  1 10:24:03 localhost kernel: mb86a16_write: writing to
[0x08],Reg[0x58],Data[0x00]
Feb  1 10:24:03 localhost kernel: mb86a16_write: writing to
[0x08],Reg[0x59],Data[0x00]
Feb  1 10:24:03 localhost kernel: mb86a16_write: writing to
[0x08],Reg[0x08],Data[0x16]
....

Strangely enough the above messages also appear to 'pulse' as well. In
the following log there is a one second pause between each set of
messages:

Feb  1 10:25:21 localhost kernel: mb86a16_write: writing to
[0x08],Reg[0x23],Data[0x78]

Ideas anyone?

FWIW there are two of these cards in the one PC.

Thanks,
