Now I get the card tuned with QAM128 but it's quite slow. I increased 
timeouts much (+5 s and +10 s for main lock). Latest CVS version is in use.

And I changed:
stv0297_writereg_mask(state, 0x88, 0x08, 0x08);
to stv0297_writereg_mask(state, 0x88, 0x08, 0x00);

as proposed in: 

Usually it gets nicely pass "equaliser full convergence" timeout but 
main lock is more difficult to accomplish.

Could you give any hints for further debug? Any register values that I 
could try to change?

Is there any specifications somewhere that would help? How about 
investigating what register values Windows driver uses. Is it for 
example possible to read them from the i2c bus?
