Hi all,

I'm trying to add support for the LifeView LR506. I started with the patch
by Daniel Weigl [1] and ported it to dvb-usb-cxusb as mkrufky suggested
[2]. The firmware [3] is uploaded correctly and the device reconnects as
expected. My current problem is, that the frontend is not connected.
I posted my patch & a dmesg log to the discussion page on the Wiki [4]
The patch ( against 13c47deee3b1 ) is also available from [5]

The relevant error message is:
[ 1208.092439] tda10046: chip is not answering. Giving up.

How can I find out what _exactly_ is going wrong? Should I try some
