Hi José/Tim/list,

On my machine, after an hour or two of use, the card's performance
improves a *lot*. When I booted up today, I was getting the same
problems you describe, (no channel worked for more than a few seconds
in mplayer). 2-3 hours later I'm getting perfect playback, using a
very crappy desktop aerial.

Tim, the only change I made was in mt20xx.c,
from: if (V4L2_TUNER_DIGITAL_TV == t->mode) {
to: if (1) {
That, and making sure to load tda9887 before tuner.
