The code now is in the repository.
Regarding sound:
Do you have an analog connection to the sound card?
If not, you need to load the saa7134 module either with
oss=1 or alsa=1. This lets the audio section appear
like a sound card. You can now route the sound data in
userspace, either with mplayer or with a separate application
like sox.
Regarding the crystals:
These deviations are ok, no reason to worry. A hint: if the
deviation in the DVB-T path is higher than about 50ppm, the
channel decoder needs longer for the first lock after sleep.
This can make several seconds difference, but only for the
first tuning procedure in a session.

  Best regards
