I have disabled 2nd adapter by default recently due to problems.
Enabling 2nd FE causes driver sensitivity problems seen as mosaic pixels
in picture. I don't know if this problem exists all devices... 2nd
adapter can be enabled with module param, modprobe dvb-usb-af9015
dual_mode=1 enables it. I will of course enable it by default when
problem is found.
I did small change for GPIO setting to avoid warmboot/coldboot problem
you have seen. Please test.
I also changed mxl5005s tuner RSSI enabled - Jose Alberto has found that
old mxl5005 driver was using it always enabled and therefore better
performance for his hardware.
