Hi to all,
I have a WinTV-HVR-4400-HD model 1278 card installed in ubuntu machine. The info for the machine and the card are the following:
Uname -a3.5.0-23-generic #35~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 25 17:15:33 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Uname -r3.5.0-23-generic
lspci -v05:00.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23887/8 PCIe Broadcast Audio and Video Decoder with 3D Comb (rev 04)	Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc.

I also installed dvBlast and dvb-apps to be able to scan and stream. When i am trying to scan i get the following message:
WARNING: frontend type (QPSK) is not compatible with requested tuning type (OFDM)
Looks like the card is using DVB-S but the scan DVB-T. Unfortunately i have 1 adapter only:
root at andrew-Lenovo:/usr/share/dvb/dvb-t# ls -l /dev/dvb/total 0drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 120 Jun 28 13:56 adapter0
and 1 frontend:
root at andrew-Lenovo:/usr/share/dvb/dvb-t# ls -l /dev/dvb/adapter0/total 0crw-rw---- 1 root video 212, 1 Jun 28 13:56 demux0crw-rw---- 1 root video 212, 2 Jun 28 13:56 dvr0crw-rw---- 1 root video 212, 0 Jun 28 13:56 frontend0crw-rw---- 1 root video 212, 3 Jun 28 13:56 net0

Any idea how i can resolve it? 
Thank you for your time,Andrew
