Hi

(I'm new to the list, hope I won't infringe any rule on my first post)

I have a hauppauge win tv nova-s plus PCI card, connected to a simple
dish wich is pointed to hotbird3. Under windows wintv works fine: I get
160+ free to air tv channels as expected.

Under ubuntu intrepid 64 bits (2.6.27 kernel) vdr fails to tune any
channel. I tried dvb-apps 'scan' with no success:

scanning Hotbird-13.0E

femon -H gives 60% signal and 40% snr. (quite bad!)
Then when I poweroff my computer hangs and the motherboards beeps
repeatedly until I hard swith it off.

Any help greatly appreciated.
(btw, http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9476 ...
 I might be having the same bug but I did not try any previous kernel
version with this card)

Bye
