i don't know if i'm getting on the right track. i missed the beginning
of this thread.

i see you speak of the cynergy T2. i do have it, so i can test any
v4l-dvb tree, provided with some time.

for example, i just tested this tree:


on my vanilla kernel 2.6.18 on debian/unstable (i can provide the kernel
config, if useful) the cinergy T2, with this tree, works:

  usbcore: registered new driver cinergyT2
  usb 5-5: USB disconnect, address 7
  usb 5-2.1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 8
  usb 5-2.1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
  DVB: registering new adapter (TerraTec/qanu USB2.0 Highspeed DVB-T

let me know if i need to try something else..
