Edit nxt6000.c

Go to ~line 467 and add this line:

 	if (fe->ops.tuner_ops.set_params) {
+		if (fe->ops.i2c_gate_ctrl) fe->ops.i2c_gate_ctrl(fe, 1);
 		fe->ops.tuner_ops.set_params(fe, param);
 		if (fe->ops.i2c_gate_ctrl) fe->ops.i2c_gate_ctrl(fe, 0);

Thanks to Alex Woods for fixing this... This will be merged into the master repository soon.
( i will also see to it that the -stable kernels get updated with this patch )

Good Luck,

Mike Krufky
