I believe he may be referring to "real parameters" as the frequency 
(specifically, in this case) which the DVB card has, due to zig-zag 
tuning or LNB compensation found the signal to be best at.

The original commit worked around this in a rather hard-to-read format. 
The last patch I posted cleaned up this code somewhat, but didn't 
actually fix the other problems with the tuning code.

The patches that have been posted recently seem to completely remove the 
code that checks for an inexact (or even exact?) match between the 
frequency requested and the frontend currently tuned parameters.
