Only the old card works at 506MHz. I have a tiny antenna which I  
tried with force_lna_activation=1, and it seems to pick up at least  
one transponder at 522MHz, so it seems it can tune when the offset is  
correct (I don't have a proper outdoor antenna to test with..) I  
guess I need to wait until some offset issues are resolved in the  
nova-t 500 driver then..

I'm still baffled by why the in-wall signal doesn't have the correct  
offset though.
