Oh, good! What is your base? You could save me time if you could point
me to your version or just send it to me that i can merge it with my code.

No, you need a modified driver for the TDA10046. In most recent cards, the TDA
runs with a 16MHz crystal instead of 4MHz. If the programming is not adapted,
the DSP crashes while booting due to the far too high clock frequency.
That's what you see. This is already supported by my driver but an additional
change is necessary to bind the silicon tuner properly.

I wil try to get a card let next week.

Best regards
