Thanks, i replaced "AUTO" with correct value of QAM FEC...infact the 
output produced by "scan .... >> channels.conf" now works with xine and 
with almost all channel. On the other hand, scan find a large number of 
channel that i can't view with xine/mplayer and i think
that this is due to poor signal of this channels or maybe problem is 
antenna. I don't know if it is a board problem.
 From now i view 50% (*the very most important*) of all 60 channels.

okay... sorry for my inexperience...
the result now is this :

tda1004x: setting up plls for 48MHz sampling clock
tda1004x: found firmware revision 29 -- ok

i think it shoud be correct.

i don't know about energy low.. i use normally an terrestrial antenna 
like this : http://personal.inet.fi/cool/lwgt/myoldvdr/uhf-antenna.jpg
but i try to use also a mobile antenna similar to this one : 
with the mobile antenna results are very very bad... but the message 
about gain is the same in both case.

no problem u're welcome.
