refer to

FE_SET_FRONTEND:
http://www.linuxtv.org/docs/dvbapi/DVB_Frontend_API.html#SECTION00328000000000000000

and,

FE_GET_EVENT
http://www.linuxtv.org/docs/dvbapi/DVB_Frontend_API.html#SECTION003210000000000000000
Ohh, ok. So there is a solution for that after all. Thanks!
Unfortunately no one gave me a clear answer on that when I asked about it last time.
Seems to work for stb0899, waiting for confirmation on cx24116.

Darron, looks you're the right person to ask:
How can I retrieve the REAL tuned parameters from the driver?
Looks like using FE_GET_PROPERTY returns cached properties that were issued with FE_SET_PROPERTY before that.

Thanks.
