Answering my own problem. It seems the DVB stuff just didn't want to scan.
After entering a frequency AND bandwith it correctly tuned and detected the
PIDs. It still didn't scan though. I had to enter each frequency
It didn't tune all channels successfully however but that might have beena
Instead my solution was to copy my entire old DB over instead. Means I kept
all my settings as well not having to retune any channels.
So FC4 + DVB + Nvidia out is possible with out any compiling whatsoever.
