Ok, so things did change a bit :-)

I still get a 0 when I cat ctl_signal_present/cur_val , but I no longer
get just a black stream from the bideo device now I get static and very
badly tuned "images". See for example:
http://personal.chaosbits.net/hauppauge-pvr-1900-test.mpg which is the
result of
cat /dev/video1 > /tmp/hauppauge-pvr-1900-test.mpg & seq 147250280 147250310 | while read i; do echo $i > /sys/class/pvrusb2/sn-6569758/ctl_frequency/cur_val; sleep 2; done ; killall cat
(warning - large file - ~65MB)

Definately an improvement.
