That's promising that you got it working with 0.22, I have a different
card but it uses the same chip (and firmware) so will update to the
latest version.  Not sure whether this would make a difference but
I'll try anything.  I've already extracted the firmware and linked it,
what is the easiest way to force the firmware to reload without
rebooting (is there a way)?  I'm currently carrying out a full backup
so don't want to shut-down.
One other question, when you did the full scan which transponder did
you start on?  I started on the BBC HD transponder itself, but am
thinking that maybe the start parameters are too limited on the 0.22
user interface; perhaps if it stripped the information from another
transponder it would work.  Let me know how you performed your scan, I
might try again some time this week.
