this is the base of the hack. there are three reasons it doesn't work
with the hvr4000 demod driver.

1. the modulation type needs to be explicit

2. fec_auto isn't available as stated in driver:

    "Not all S2 mmodulation schemes are support and not all rates with
     a scheme are support. Especially, no auto detect when in S2 mode"

3. the delivery field has to be set

Once the above are done it appears to works ok.

cya and thx.
