this thread piqued my curiosity. I have a skystar 2 with the mt312
frontend and I cannot tune those channels. Ok, I'm running a very old
version of the driver (still using kernel 2.6.3 and I'm happy with it)
where, in mt312.c, it says

.symbol_rate_min = MT312_SYS_CLK / 128

which is about 7M.
I checked the latest source from cvs and it has the same value for
Now, aren't both the vp310 and the mt312 supposed to support 1..45M?
