If someone is wondering what mail Manu answered, here it is with another
try. The mailinglist didn't approve with that my username (and hence my
email address) had changed. It bounced.



I have started working on HLCI support for mythtv (for now without any
coordination with the mythtv project). When I last worked on it (a couple
of weeks ago) I managed to decode at least some encypted channels.

I started looking into it again last week. However, I'm seeing problem
with the latest cvs (or any cvs since the merge) that I often don't get a
lock when tuning channels. when I revert to cvs from for example nov 11
everthing works fine again.
For now I can't even look at FTA channels using mythtv. I have started
looking into the problem but havn't found the cause yet. Does anyone else
see this problem with the dst driver (or any other for that matter) with
cvs after the merge?

I have a patch for adding needed support (ca_info_enq) to the dst_ca
driver, but I need to get latest cvs up and running ok before I can post

If anyone could help me pinpoint the problem (from logs) I'd appreciate it
and gladly produce some logs for you.
