No, it just defines a way to indicate an inner FEC method through the DVB
Service Information. But since there is no inner FEC method defined for the
DVB-C transmission standard, the only possible value you can use is:

What do you want to implement? I suggest you start by examining the DVB
Service Information you receive (try e.g. dvbsnoop). I'm 99.99% sure you'll
find "no conv. coding" indicated in your cable delivery system descriptors.

The VES1820 is a demodulator for the DVB-C standard and thus has no inner
FEC (Viterbi) decoder. The circuits for this are simply not there, period.
Stop thinking about inner FEC, it is definitely _not_ the problem you are
