Mine doesn't. Signal and SNR are ok, it works smoothly on my Windows laptop.

On Linux it does work, but I get a kind of passing distortion on the image
and some disturbing audio  clicks.

Though it could look like a signal problem, I can differentiate them from
bad signal noise.

I noticed that this disturb is present exclusively on 8mhz UHF muxers.
I can receive one 7mhz mux and it has not problems, even with lower SNR.

I already followed these instructions.
I use kernel, and your latest stable v4l-dvb-kernel.
