That's your mistake -- now for DVB-T the default mode needs to be
left as 4 (that's DVBT-DBA-drivers; how that specifically differs
from mode 0 DVB-T I have no idea, but that's the way it is now)

Only mode 4 will work with yesterday's /siano snapshot, even
though the firmware is the same -- you'll also need to rename the
firmware to what the code expects:

There appears to be another copy of the smsdvb code in a repository
called somehow `hd' which differs slightly; the only difference I
looked at is one which I needed to apply for my 2.6.24-era kernel.
I need to look more closely at what else differs.
Hope that helps...
