Hmm, I'm having very weird behaviour with it! 

On some frequencies (e.g. 11777000/V/27500 on hotbird), it locks fairly 
quickly now I've fixed the code a bit more.

On others (e.g. 11345000/H/27500 on hotbird), it doesn't lock at all.. its 
like it doesn't even see a signal.

The voltage setting is fine - I've checked with a voltmeter. As far as I can 
tell the 22kHz tone is working as well although I cannot measure it to check.

For some reason it only sees a signal for FEC 2/3 channels - very strange - I 
mean if I'd broken the FEC settings, I should still see a signal. However, 
the 11345000 above is 2/3 and it cannot see it either :(

I've got another card (stv0299) in the machine, and it works fine with all 
frequencies (same dish).
