    Subject[DVB patch 21/54] frontend: stv0297: QAM128 tuning improvement
    From: Patrick Boettcher <>

    while investigating the QAM_128-issue with the stv0297-driver for the
    Cablestar (which is not the same as the one in dvb-kernel CVS, yet), I
    fixed it, not by increasing the timeout, but by disabling the
    corner-detection for QAM_128 and higher.

    This patch has been tested on dvb-kernel cvs, and has been reported to
    work by multiple users. Some cards still need timeout increase on top of
    this patch. This will be addressed later.
