Hi all,

can you say what's the meaning of such a message?

I'm using it with:
dvbscan  /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/it-MyCity
Unable to query frontend status

using a TerraTec Electronic GmbH with dvb-usb-dib0700 driver.

The module seems to be loaded correctly, indeed I get this in the
kernel log:

[ 1834.456051] dib0700: loaded with support for 7 different device-types

The led on the device switched on when I performed the first scan.

Thanks for any help.
