Hi Tim

Thanks for your help, but it didn't solve my problems.

I have now read all 300i related emails from December until now, and
after looking at the patches and the 2.6.16 source my conclusion is that
the patch in 2.6.16 covers both the patch you referred to, as well as
the module load order patch from 2006-02-17.
I had actually tried to load tda9887 prior to saa7134 before sending my
last mail, but didn't mention it as I assumed it was fixed in 2.6.16 (as
it was mentioned as required for analogue, and I got analogue working
either way). Now I re-tested load order on a clean reboot, and I still
had no no luck with dvbscan (so I assume I was correct in my previous
I also found a reference to changing "if (V4L2_TUNER_DIGITAL_TV ==
t->mode) {" to "if (1) {" in mt20xx.c, and tried it despite the warning
that it would break analogue tuning. Still no luck with dvbscan.
