ok,understand. I think problem is that the band setting can be adjusted either via the
set_tone switch or via the diseqc_msg. And the driver only handles the first case.So for
an app which chooses the latter method(like szap does I suppose) tuning won't work because
the band setting is wrong. So your attempt to fix it in diseqc_send_master_cmd() is
probably correct.(if you take the right buffer :p )

Im fine with that. I don't know the correct ones either, but as long as they work they are
ok I guess. It wouldn't be the first values marked as "guessed" in the code ;)

Hm don't think adding an extra ioctl extra for that driver will be accepted, nor that it
would be actually useful.
But there seems to be already a interface for that. See include/dvb/ca.h.
For example the ttpci driver implements it, see linux/drivers/media/dvb/ttpci/av7110_ca.c.
It seems you have to add a bit more code around it ,than just the "send the program_id"
part to get it fit into the api. But I haven't found time to look much closer at it.
