having read various tutorials, having tried various repositories including v4l-dvb-experimental from mcentral.de, v4l-dvb-test and the regular v4l-dvb, having installed rc4 of 2.4.22 kernel, while trying to follow the rules of clean install and reboot, I have to admit, that tuning to 794Mhz for the Austrian MUX-A seems to be impossible with linux (feisty). The same device works without problems with a medium to strong signal on XP.

Current status: i seem to tune, but no SNR-Level seems sufficient for a lock.

here is my lsusb: Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0db0:5581 Micro Star International 
dmesg is identical to most other postings - ZL10353, QT1010 and GL861 are being detected on "... 55801 USB 2.0...", no firmware upload takes place.
Setting an additional   zl10353_single_write(fe, 0x5A, 0x0C);
as described on http://linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2007-January/015518.html
shows no effort.

kaffeine shows some signal, two of 99%, SNR reaches 12% once (on the wrong frequency?) and won´t lock on to it.

I cannot identify the problem without help. Would someone please assist me in tracking down and solving the error?

I´ve already returned a WinTV HVR-900 to my dealer, because of the missing micronas support in the newest revision and get starting depressed :-(

So long and thanks for all the ... help

Kind regards

P.s: dmesg output will follow after another kernel has been compiled. Which other log files would you like to see?
