I am quite sure that you are correct.  In my xc-bluebird patch, the
zl10353 is configured with the same settings that work with the xc3028
inside the em2880 driver.  the zl10353 driver itself *is* working for
other devices in Australia using tuners other than the xc3028.

All evidence points to the pact that we're missing the correct firmware
for use in AU.  If you can capture that firmware, try to get the driver
to use it, with the code as-is after applying the xc-bluebird patch.  If
it works, then you'll have some happy list readers.  Let me know how it
turns out.
