Hello Miroslav,

thanks for this information. I'm speaking about dvb-t and I'm using
the saa7134 module with the same options, with a custom Debian kernel
(this is not the problem, I also tried with a Mythbuntu live cd, and
it's working). Today I tried with a different antenna cable and the
situation is a little better, unc values of tzap are near to zero.
I've read some good reviews of AVerMedia DVB-T 771. It has good tuning
performances, but it lacks the MPEG2 decoder. Anyone has some
experience with that board?
