I used the patches -- and increasing the version surely does help.

I'm still getting
FE_DISEQC_SEND_MASTER_CMD failed: Connection timed out

but that doesn't seem to matter (there's only 1 satellite connected anyway and 
that happens to be on diseqc 0), I actually see some useful output 
in /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0.

Tuning works, so does recording stuff through DMX_SET_PES_FILTER (input = 

I'm having some problem reading the NIT though (the app works correctly with a 
normal DVB-S card --
struct dmx_sct_filter_params f;
memset(&f, 0, sizeof(dmx_sct_filter_params));
memset(&f.filter.filter, 0, DMX_FILTER_SIZE);
memset(&f.filter.mask, 0, DMX_FILTER_SIZE);
memset(&f.filter.mode, 0, DMX_FILTER_SIZE);
f.pid = 0x10;
f.timeout = 10000;
f.filter.filter[0] = 0; // we want all tables
f.filter.mask[0] = 0;
ioctl(fd, DMX_SET_FILTER, &f);

At that point, there is much less traffic on the fd than with a "normal" card, 
and some of it is bogus.
Any ideas about this (or is there something I'm doing wrong in the code)? 
(Turning off DMX_CHECK_CRC seems to restore the data amount to normal -- so 
it's probably broken packets getting dropped by the CRC check).
