Timing is all calculated in the tuning algorithm. so shouldn't matter
much, rest DVB-S2 specific things are all very much clock speed dependent.

This depends upon the board configuration, different boards are using
different setup 's.

I currently use a TDA8261 PLL based tuner not the STB6100 and hence.
Some more refinements going on.

Hmm .. the driver is not yet released .. very much in pre-alpha state
where some people are contributing as well. Quite a few more things to
be done.
