The patch in question has already been applied to the development 
repository, and we have discontinued usage of the cvs repositories.  
They haven't been updated in months.

All new development has moved to mercurial -- full support for your card 
can be retrieved using the drivers in v4l-dvb.hg ... For a howto:


However, this will not answer your original question about signal 
strength -- The lgdt330x driver does not report signal strength due to 
the ambiguity of the spec... For further info, google the following: 
"linux-dvb signal strength mac michaels"

You didn't do anything wrong -- the driver just doesn't report it.
