Thanks Hartmut for that one ! The card finally works, even with a small
non-amplified indoor antenna, which originally belongs to the Cinergy T²

What I have done is apply your (Hartmut's) patch on top of the one Hermann
did supply, issue "make clean;make;make install;reboot" and try the card
under Windows to make sure it is not broken.

There are still some issues, as the card ignores some of the transponders
in my dvb-t/de-Hamburg file, which it was able to receive in June last
year, but I am happy to see it working again !
