[linux-dvb] dvbstream fails to tune QAM-256

I'm using Debian's dvbstream 0.6+cvs20090621-1 to capture video and 
closed captioning to file.

If I tune with azap, dvbstream works fine, but I can't get it to tune on 
its own.

In the Debian source code, I activated DVB_ATSC by adding -DDVB_ATSC to 
CFLAGS in the Makefile.

dvbstream -f 645000000 -qam 256 -v 49 a 52 -o > test.ts

gives me the error "Unknown FE type".

Suggestions? Is this a problem with an API that has changed since 
dvbstream's last release?
