Unfortunately, this number doesn't tell much...

I don't have much experience withe the tuner and channel decoder on this
card, but i would suppose the following: Thake a careful look at your
channels.conf resp. initial config file. Are the frequencies correct?
Also: many channel decoders support automatic configuration of the
coding parameters like FEC or guard interval, but if you define them and
they are wrong, the decoder won't lock. At least the tda10046 behaves
like this.

Good luck
