Does that mean there are no QAM channels I

do something more? What about 64 vs 256?

No, I was fumbling about trying to get QAM.  It looks like the driver
is loaded (along with VSB):

or51132: Waiting for firmware upload(dvb-fe-or51132-qam.fw)...
or51132: Version: 10001334-17430000 (133-4-174-3)
or51132: Firmware upload complete.
or51132: Waiting for firmware upload(dvb-fe-or51132-vsb.fw)...
or51132: Version: 10001134-19430000 (113-4-194-3)
or51132: Firmware upload complete.

I guess what I'm really trying to do is take the next step and verify
that my card is working, and tune a channel (any channel).
