[linux-dvb] Re : Re : TT S2-3200 driver

I didn't experience any differences with dvb-s2 channels.
Those problematic transponders always produces corrupted video streams. It's always DVB-s2 30000 3/4. When entering SR of 29999 I get constant lock, but the stream is corrupted. 1 HD channel has only a VideoRate of 4,5 MBit and audio 77 kbit/s :(


kind regards
