[Pw_forum] Unable to separate respective spin eigenvalues?

from PP/src/bands.f90 :
IF (spin_component/=1.and.nspin/=2) &
CALL errore('punch_bands','incorrect spin_component',1)
So, you’ll never get a spin-up and spin-down band structure unless you specify in your input
spin and strarting_magnetization variables.
PS see also pw.x input description:
In the spin-orbit case starting with zero
starting_magnetization on all atoms imposes time reversal
symmetry. The magnetization is never calculated and
kept zero (the internal variable domag is .FALSE.).
