#11815 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

Ceton Eth 6 cannot record using existing Ceton driver

Reported by: matt@… Owned by: jpoet

Description

It appears that the Ceton Eth6 does not like having the tuner set to frequency 0. This may also be an issue with newer revisions of the Ceton 4 as well.

Attached patch removes calls that tune to frequency 0, and appears to resolve the issue.

I have NOT tested to see how this impacts power draw.

Also worth noting, Ron Frazier has reached out to Ceton to see if there is a new way to get the old behavior. A ticket to Ceton support simply resulted in a "don't do that" recommendation.

Fix the cable-card mode for the 6-tuner Ceton.

The new Ceton cards don't like being told to tune to frequency 0 when using
qam_256. This problem was diagnosed/fixed by matt @ mossholder.com, and
reviewed/cleaned up by Ronald Frazier. Thanks guys!

Fixes #11815
