Marc reported it non functional on Ubuntu 6.10 with its 2.6.17 kernel.
On FedoraCore6 it worked for him.

Thierry from the video4linux usbvision project seems to be the only one
else on the lists currently with such a device. He confirmed it working
on vanilla 2.6.17.13 and even tested on vanilla 2.6.17.10, works.
The current v4l-dvb on this older kernels is not yet tested for it.

After it seemed there was also some precompiled module involved, I
thought we found it. Marc is now back with a clean install of v4l-dvb
and still doesn't get it to work since three weeks now.

I pointed already that we are not always fully compatible with older
kernels and that compat to distribution kernels is a not guaranteed
feature anyway. Why he can't use the Ubuntu 2.6.17, I don't know.

Marc, add at least "dmesg" for "modprobe -v cinergyT2" or what you can
find on error messages for it to your new report in the old thread.

Cheers,
Hermann
