Hi Hans, thanks for your answer, I say what I tryed;

your dmesg output looks quite good. In fact, the only line that irritates me
is the line with

> xc2028 4-0061: Error on line 1063: -5
> This line indicates an i2c-communication problem with the tuner.
> As it happens BEFORE the XC3028  firmware is loaded, it cannot have

I was trying latest firmware (I think): dvb-usb-dib0700-03-pre1.fw
I also tryed the previous; dvb-usb-dib0700-1.10.fw
And an other one; dvb-usb-dib0700-01.fw

This last one doesn't give any error, but I also can not see anything on
scanning. I send you the dmesg.

Feb 13 19:14:50: xc2028 7-0061: Loading firmware for type=D2620 DTV8 (208),

This last lines are a little bit different from the ones I have... Perhaps
something about the firmware modification.

I did not change the extract_firmware.pl file (in fact, it is not useable

I tryed to do the same but I can't find 0x64000200 on the hex... Could you
send me your firmware just to try?

certainly a good idea to use an amplified antenna. Have you got another

I use the same device on XP and it detects some channels. When I try to scan
with kaffeine I don't see any SNR or anything so I guess the comunication
with xc3028 is failing.

Thanks again for your answer. I also send this mail to pattrick who probably
knows better the dibcom firmware stuff.
