Not true: CX88-DVB supports a total of FOUR (as of 7/20/05) DViCO 
FusionHDTV boards.


Is your board one of the two ATSC boards mentioned above, of is it one 
of the DVB boards mentioned below:

Also, you speak of December 7th and December 9th... Unless I've been 
sleeping for five months, today is July 21, 2005.  Are you still having 
these problems with more RECENT code???

Both of the DVB boards that I've listed above use the mt352 frontend.  
There have been changes to the mt352 frontend code recently... Also, DVB 
frontend code was recently removed from video4linux cvs... Is it 
possible that you may be experiencing a versioning conlict???

Please try again, but do not use cvs.  Instead, please try the latest 
kernel in -linus tree:


This has all of the latest changes (in both video4linux [analog] and 
linux-dvb [digital]) that could possibly affect your hardware... If you 
are still having problems, please provide detailed bug reports so that 
we can (hopefully) fix this before 2.6.13 mainline release.
