Thank you for testing.  Does this mean that using the dvb-pll tree, 
everything is working except for these two channels?

I find this as somewhat of a surprise -- If anything works at all, I 
would  assume that it should work just as before, 100%.

Enough time has gone by such that the v4l-dvb master tree has changed 
drastically with regards to dvb tuner code.

What applications are you using in your testing?  What are the 
frequencies of these two channels that are giving you a problem?

Would you mind testing again, by doing the following?

1) Start off using a fresh clone of the current v4l-dvb repository:

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
cd v4l-dvb
make distclean
make allmodconfig
make install

.... do your testing here, confirming that everything works.

2) Now, instead of testing the dvb-pll tree alone, we want to actualy 
merge those changesets into your current working v4l-dvb tree.

{from inside the v4l-dvb directory:}

hg pull http://linuxtv.org/hg/~mkrufky/dvb-pll
hg update -m
make install

.... do your testing again.  I would expect your results from this test 
to look exactly the same as the results from step one.

The changesets in the dvb-pll tree really shouldn't stop you from 
receiving any channels.  This is a cleanup that I would like to get 
merged into the master tree, but I need to know that everything is 
working as expected before doing so.

Thanks again for testing.
