First, thanks to all for the wonderful v4l project. I am able to get
this card going in Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop (Dell Vostro 1700) with no
changes apart from copying the correct firmware. What fantastic
I have been trying very hard to get this USB tuner to work on my Asus
M3A78-EM board in Ubuntu 9.04 with no success. I have tried the stock
Jaunty kernel, the mainline (vanilla?) kernel, the included kernel
modules, and modules compiled from v4l Mercurial with no success.
Generally speaking, after a cold boot, the stick will work for a while.
It will scan channels, lock one or two, and then I will receive a filter
timeout. Once the filter has timed out, not even a cold boot will
revive the stick. I have to power down the system, remove the stick,
and place it in a different USB port. Once I have done this, I am able
to filter/lock with varying degrees of success. Sometimes it will allow
me to generate a full channels.conf, sometimes not. However, once
hitting the "filter timeout" error, dmesg gets flooded with:
s5h1411_writereg: writereg error 0x19 0xf5 0x0000, ret == 0)
dib0700: i2c write error (status = -108)
The filter timeout occurs after running "scan tuning.dat > channels.conf"
The file tuning.dat is generated via "w_scan -fa -x > tuning.dat"
The firmware dvb-fe-xc5000-1.1.fw was copied to /lib/firmware per the
v4l Wiki instructions.

Is there something major I'm overlooking? Are there any known issues
with this hardware combination? I am willing to test any changes to the
xc5000 driver if needed.
