hello hartmut

 i don't understand very well, cause my english is poor :((

this is the correct channel.conf for paris ( xine and mplayer):


and the correct fr-Paris is ( xine and mplayer):

# Paris - France (DVB-T transmitter of the Eiffel tower)
# T freq bw fec_hi fec_lo mod transmission-mode guard-interval hierarchy
T 474167000 8MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE
T 498167000 8MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE
T 522167000 8MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE
T 562167000 8MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE
T 586167000 8MHz 3/4 NONE QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE

however i have an another usb dvb-t card with a firmware dvb-usb-dtt200u-01.fw and any problem without to change my fr-Paris like this:

# Paris - France (DVB-T transmitter of the Eiffel tower)
# T freq bw fec_hi fec_lo mod transmission-mode guard-interval hierarchy
T 474000000 8MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE
T 498000000 8MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE
T 522000000 8MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE
T 562000000 8MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE
T 586000000 8MHz 3/4 NONE QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE

i have an another problem my fm-radio don't want to work witht gnomeradio or gradio:((

this is a part of my dmesg:2.6.15-25-k7 ( 25-43) ubuntu 6.06

Oh, good to know!
May i ask you to investigate this further and then post a "fixed"
channnels.conf file?
You are not the only one who has these problems ;-)
The big question is how to continue with this:
I could fix this in the channel decoder driver
- either with a quite dirty fix which has disadvantages
- or with a clean solution which requires to put the driver into a
   kernel thread. This is a significant amount of work.
I still think the best solution is to handle this with a scanning
utility. We might extend and polish the w_scan utility for this.
