Ooops-Sorry forgot to cc the list

I responded as follows:

Hi Mike

I have this card working fine in my myth box

Whilst the card is supported under Hardy,  the module doesn't turn on 
the cards on board tuner amplifier by default.


sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options
/Add:/ options dvb-usb-dib0700 force_lna_activation=1

and reboot

Then try tuning stations.  It'll probably tune fine

Hope this helps
