[linux-dvb] cx88-dvb: fix nxt200x rf input switching broke my tuner? :)

Thanks for your reply, but that is not what I'm seeing in MythTV and
TVTime for /dev/video0.  I'm getting signal from /dev/video0 when I use
the upper input, not the lower one.  I haven't trying tuning 8VSB, but
as for the QAM input, that seems to be working as expected.

Maybe I should look at the driver config for input select in SAA7134 or
swap the input selection lines for VSB and QAM in the dvb code?

After looking at the input selection code in nxt200x.c, QAM and VSB, it
looks like if I switch these lines it will swap the inputs.
-	state->config->set_pll_input(buf+1, 1); 
+	state->config->set_pll_input(buf+1, 0);

-	state->config->set_pll_input(buf+1, 0);
+	state->config->set_pll_input(buf+1, 1);

Am I correct?

I am confused as to what these lines do
	if (state->config->set_ts_params)
		state->config->set_ts_params(fe, 1);  <-- what the
front-end parameter 0 or 1 mean.

Thank you,

They should be the same now -- that was what the change was all about.

By default now, the top RF input should be 8VSB and the bottom should be
QAM & analog (both ota and cable).
