[linux-dvb] Tuning doesn't work with Wideview driver

No luck, neither adding or substracting works :-(

In fact, under windows the stick's led blinks while scanning, but under linux 
it stays fixed no matter which frequency it scans, so I suppose there's some 
kind of incompatibility between the driver and the hardware. Perhaps my model 
has a hardware revision slightly different from the supported by the driver.

Now, I will try to turn on debug info on the modules to see if I can get more 
information about what's happening...

Thanks anyway
