[mythtv-users] cx88_dvb gets into a funky mood (100% signal, no lock)

I've been playing with an old pchdtv-3000 card in a new ubuntu system
running 2.6.17-10-generic kernel.   It works fine, but sometimes -- no
pattern yet as to when, the card will get into a state where myth and
azap show it as reporting 100% signal strength (instead of the normal
strengths in the range from 20 to 90) but no lock except the "1", and
no function.

To fix it, I have to unload the cx88_dvb module with modprobe -r and re load it,
and all is working again.

Anybody had this trouble, and know what causes it?  Never seen it on my
regular pchdtv-3000 running on a 2.6.12 system.
