Hi Gene,

The answer is "note really yet".

What I have done so far:

I have installed a fresh Jessie on another machine (the "old" install is 
Wheezy) and managed to create a channels.dvb file (so the hangs seem linked 
to the Wheezy machine).

With this file I can get the HD channels - sort of: I get the sound but not 
the picture (on Kaffeine-Trinity; Kaffeine (KDE 4) does not see DVB at all).

So I have three possibilities:

- Kaffeine-Trinity can't show HD
- I have a cable problem
- I have a stick problem 

I've received another DVB STick (Hauppauge PCTV 292e). It runs with Jessie 
(Wheezy's kernel is too old) but the connector in not compatble with my DVB-C 
cable so I'm waiting for an adapter. DVB-T works.

Maybe in afew days when I get the adapter I can debug this more. I could live 
with DVB-T but reception is very difficult with an indoor antenna and and 
outdoor antenna is a problem.
