To sum it all up attached is the patch that I'm using.
Currently there are 3 problems:
- VHF doesn't tune, although signal strength is high
- frequencies 794 and 802 don't tune (many above and below do tune),
signal strength is high.
I noticed that  these 2 frequencies are handled by this entry in 
{ .lomax = 780000000, .svco = 2, .spd = 0, .scr = 1, .sbs = 4, .gc3 = 0},
is it possible that there's an error in it?
- radio: some stations can be found, but even though I played with the 
mixer (using kmix)
I can't hear anything.

All the rest seems to be working fine :)
