hi andrew

>...with kernels -gt 2.6.16 ...

yes, i mean 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 

(  -gt := "greater than"  )

the problem is that if i zap through the stations it seems that there is a unreliable behavior.
sometimes a got the station quick and reliable.
zapping forward, than back again and it is complete unreliable.
sometimes showing up *can't tune to...*

also searching for channels: sometimes the complete set and sometimes not....

same behavior with scandvb or kaffeine !

or i get the complete set of stations and at the next moment i'm unable to tune to it.(kaffeine)

with kernel 2.6.16 it was much more better.

i played with my equipment: antenna turned, etc., etc.
i have no idea. nearly daily looking at kernel.org...

take a look at:

this was the next curiosity:

firmware exchanged, played with dvb-t, rebooted. all worked fine.
next day: same firmware, first boot, no chance,.........


i'm starting thinking about: is my card broken.
how can i check this ?
