Do your Freecom tuners use the DibCom module?

I've got one of these, and it will now [after upgrading to 2.6.22] will 
come up in the warm state, but although it looks like it'll tune okay, 
it never succeeds in producing any data. Dvbtune -i returns no table 
data etc etc. Googling the problem returns lots of people with signal 
problems, although mine is fed from the same splitter as the two DVB-T 
PCI cards and I'm getting zero biterror on those.
