thanks, but this did not worked...

as i was not able to set pwm (got "unknown parameter"), i changed the 

i replaced the line state->pwm = pwm with state->pwm = 0x64

i am not sure if this is the correct place to do this, but i think so!?
after this, using czap changed only the "ber" value from  000062d4 to 
00029220, but the status is still "00" and no FE_HAS_LOCK...

i would really like to try to test if it works with my original 
firmware, but it seems the driver does not support loading of the 
original firmware!? )-:

seems that i have to return to windows, if nobody has another idea )-:
