Ok, i tried this, and it didn't work.

feinfo informed me my frequency stepsize was 62.500 so i generated a list  
of frequencies to scan, using the first line of fr-Rouen (i assumed the  
only wrong parameter was the frequency) from the lowest frequency my card  
could scan to the highest one, using 62.500 steps... 10 hours latter, i  
didn't get anything. :(

My dear friends who have the same problem with this bloody Artec T1, don't  
waste your time with that.

I've been told on irc that there must be somthing wrong in the source  
code, something related to pll, maybe, but i don't know anything about  
coding, so i can't do anything myself...

So far, i didn't do anything usefull and i don't see what more i can do to  
be able to tune channels... That means that until one of you guys find a  
way to correct this error, my card is useless... I hope someone will make  
it, i give up.

Good luck gentlemen, and once again, thanks for all your hard work.
