Toni, don't case about the signal and snr values as longas ber and unc is 
0. Most of the signal and snr calculation stuff need 
floating-point-operations which can't be done in a kernel module, this the 
signal and snr values depend on the modulation-driver and are most of the 
time "incorrect".

Besides the long time it takes for to get a lock the reception looks 
good to me. Do you still have problems when watching video?
