Dear, linux-dvb.

My company got some DVB card, as they name it Philips (but seems they
dont know model). Well, i except it is some WinTV-Nova or like this

lspci -vvv

01:0b.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Technotrend Systemtechnik GmbH: Unknown device 100f
        Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
        Status: Cap- 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
        Latency: 32 (3750ns min, 9500ns max)
        Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 9
        Region 0: Memory at ff8ffc00 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]


ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:01:0b.0[A] -> GSI 9 (level, low) -> IRQ 9
saa7146: found saa7146 @ mem e0882c00 (revision 1, irq 9) (0x13c2,0x100f).
DVB: registering new adapter (TT-Budget/WinTV-NOVA-CI PCI).
adapter has MAC addr = 00:d0:5c:6b:48:60
DVB: registering frontend 0 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...

Problem is card locking well to:
but not locking

Kernel 2.6.11-rc4

Other cards (for example Twinhan/Vision) locking well.
Is it a bug in STV0299B frontend?
