I have tried the stock DVB drivers in the 2.6.12 and 2.6.13 kernels.
They behave the same.
I have just downloaded the latest DVB patch dated 05Sep05 from the
linuxtv site. I will try patching a 2.6.13 kernel with it, and see if
Playing with azap, I have seen it take up to 20 seconds to get a lock
on that station (KOB-DT 4-1 or 26-3).
Once it gets a lock, it holds it. Once it gets a lock, I can stop
azap and restart it, and it immediately gets a lock.
If I use azap to tune another station, then try to tune KOB again, it
will once again take up to 20 seconds to get a lock.
If I use azap to tune to another station, then tell it to tune KOB
again and let it try for a second, then *stop* azap and wait 20
seconds, then start azap again, it immediately gets a lock. It is
like the actual "tuning" process takes a while on that station.
If the latest DVB driver does not help, I am wondering if I can make
Myth retry for up to 20 seconds. Where would I look in the Myth
source, if I want to play with this?
