Mmmh, after seeing the patch recently posted today by treza at chez dot 
com, it seems that your stick has an mt2060 tuner.
I'm writing a driver for another stick which also uses an mt2060 and I 
can only tune to some muxes (considering that I'm ~6km far from the 
Collserola tower that's pretty bad, it could be my antenna though, since 
the line of sight to the tower is blocked by a block of flats in front 
of my house):

I can see almost perfectly the TV3 mux, I can see with some artifacts 
the CUATRO, TELE5 and ANTENA3 muxes (if I touch the stick while tuning), 
TVE is full of artifacts, and that's all I can see.

In my case, though, I have the same problems under windows (in fact 
under windows I cannot see TVE, ANTENA3 and TELE5 at all, I can just 
tune but never get a picture).

I'll try to activate the MT2060_SPURCHECK to see if it tunes better, but 
I doubt it since I should have plenty of signal, shouldn't I?



A: Because it destroys the flow of the conversation
Q: Why is it bad?
A: No, it's bad.
Q: Should I top post in replies to mailing lists?
