Unhappy WinTV DVB-T usb tuning problems


Hi,

So far i have got my SuSE 10.0 Box to recognise the device, but when i try and scan for channels (on pontop pike)i get the following output

Code:
linux:/home/ian/linuxtv/linuxtv-dvb-apps-1.1.0/util/scan # ./scan dvb-t/uk-PontopPike
scanning dvb-t/uk-PontopPike
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 690000000 0 1 0 1 0 0 0
>>> tune to: 690000000:INVERSION_AUTO:BANDWIDTH_8_MHZ:FEC_1_2:FEC_NONE:QAM_16:TRANSMISSION_MODE_2K:GUARD_INTERVAL_1_32:HIERARCHY_NONE
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!
>>> tune to: 690000000:INVERSION_AUTO:BANDWIDTH_8_MHZ:FEC_1_2:FEC_NONE:QAM_16:TRANSMISSION_MODE_2K:GUARD_INTERVAL_1_32:HIERARCHY_NONE (tuning failed)
WARNING: filter timeout pid 0x0011

SuSE detected it as soon as i plugged it in, Fedora Core should also have the capabilities to do this, if not, you will need to modprobe the device.

I realise this is over a year now, but I have EXACTLY the same problem. The USB card is detected, seems to work ok, but I can't get any channels from Pontop Pike. How did you get it to work?
