Thanks  Oliver,

You are right, loading the stv0299 before b2c2 solved the Skystar2 
issue. Why this is not needed with a stock
kernel will probably remain a mystery.

I am still stuck with my Atopia key though. The frontend identification 
fails, that's why it finds no frontend.
I may have to ask for more help later.
