[linux-dvb] [PATCH] Correct an error in uk-PontopPike (tuning failure)

Tuning fails when I run 'scan uk-PontopPike' with my Nova-T USB sticks.
However, it succeeds when I instead point it at one of my Nova-T PCI cards

Setting FEC_HI to 3/4 works with both, as does setting it to NONE; also,
setting FEC_LO to 3/4 works. This is expected, since previously-generated
channels.conf files say 3/4 for both (for channels on the same frequency) and
otherwise agree with the scan file.

I have therefore chosen to set both to 3/4.

If a bus stops at a bus station, does work stop at a workstation?
