-no attachments. all c+p in mozilla.

that would make no design sense, putting a more expensive stereo decoder
on a mono module, but ill check the pcb and the tuner datasheet too.

ive contacted siemens, but theres only a customer firewall diverting to
technotrend gmbh and collecting marketing data :(

could someone pls check with a win98 installation if the original
siemens sw gets stereo and report, (ill try too)?
and i need to know a kabelbw channel broadcasting stereo all the time or
use the modulator output of my vhs vcr.

ive spent several hours analyzing this up to now:

the datasheet avail. from itt is for a msp3400 -G- type which handles
demodulator registers setup by automatic standard detection and stereo
detection, but weve the old -D- type here, or even older,  which
requires manual setup and basic~advanced knowlegde about the tv/stereo
modulation standards parameters which are partially mentioned in the paper.

register 0x18 should tell about multichannel audio reception status -if-
modulator setup is correct... its always 0 or 0xa000 here.
(rmmod/insmod dvb-ttpci.ko debug=3 -> syslog "stereo detection:")

(grrmbl, mozilla wraps again)

ive scheduled fixing this until end of month. after then itll be a easy
 "replacement mod" on vdr-wiki for pin-compatible -G- type, with
adaption of the driver, eventually.

or even more simply, just connect a vhs vcr to the newly enabled video
inputs and stereo to the soundcard line in, nearly everybody has still
got around, this was the intention of my patch, the cheapest way.

and if you want "acceptable" digital sourced sound out of this card, you
need a trust 514/7dx (cmedia 8738-MX) anyway for connecting the spdif
