Hi Manu,
	Thanks for posting this. I also have the same issues as Mark.
The dst_wait_dst_ready: dst wait NOT ready after 200

Although I see a different number of 250 with the v4l-dvb tree on the
newer rev of this card and and this with the older (1022A?): see below

This mail was started a few days ago, but not finished.
I just haven't had the time to try all the posibilities.

I have added your patches (there are 5?) to my tree and rebuilt.
I still get the output below, but sometimes I do get a good tune and
have dumped channel lists. I will collect the debug info and post.
Always, if the wait ready is 54 or 53,
the tune fails, good tunes are much faster ~10-12.

I have wanted to rebuild all the other tools to be sure they are not
causing problems, but I expect the tuning is still not reliable.
I have not tried with the newer rev of the card.
And unfortunatly the first Pacific storm in a long time has blown up
and moved my dish (held in place by a cinder block)
and now I can't tune anything even with a set top box.

read_dst: reply is 0x0

I will repost with a better collection of debug output.
Should I post the output on a website or in the mail?

Thanks, mark
