[linux-dvb] LifeView TV Walker Twin DVB-T (LR540) Problem

Hi guys,

I've got one of these that has been successfully working on my MythDora
(based on Fedora 8) machine for the past few months. It didn't ever scan
properly though. I was able to use my other cards to populate the channel
list. Once the channels were set up, it worked perfectly.

All of sudden it seems to have stopped working. Using dvbtune it is unable
to lock on to a signal. In MythTV I just get a garbled mess like a very bad
signal. The audio is almost intelligble, video is a mess.

The firmware is in the right spot (as it was working before). I even
downloaded it again to check it hadn't somehow corrupted. As far as I am
aware nothing has changed (well it must have since it's not working).

Unplugging it and using it on my WinXP laptop it seems to work fine. So the
hardware, cabling etc should alright.

I'm not real sure what to try now. I can't seem to get the debug options
with the kernel modules to work properly. I'm not getting any extra info
output that I can see i.e. I'm doing this:
modprobe dvb_usb debug=511
modprobe dvb_usb_m920x debug=1
Is that right?
