ah yep this does the trick :)
Now I got the devices:
[nicolas at oipunk:/dev/dvb]$ find .

and `dmesg' looks good too. Thanks very much!

However there is something left and I'm not sure, if it is a driver
issue. Most probably the driver is OK and I'm doing something wrong ;)
As far as I know, I now need to create a channels.conf file for xine,
mplayer... Thats what I did:

[nicolas at oipunk:~/temp/tv/dvb-apps-9311c900f746/util/scan]$ ./scan
scanning dvb-t/ch-All
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 482000000 0 5 9 1 1 3 0
>>> tune to:
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!
>>> tune to:
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!
>>> tune to:
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!
ERROR: initial tuning failed
dumping lists (0 services)

I hope this is not a stupid newbie problem, but until now I couldn't
find a solution. I also tried the `w_scan' utility which couldn't find
any channels either.

I would very much appreciate any help.

kind regards
