Hi all,

HVR4000 is now running on my 2.6.20(64bit)  box, great. There is one
problem however: if I scan  with kaffeine  I only get  about 12
stations.  Switching  between  ASTRA  and  Eutelsat (Diseq)  doesn't
seem to work. Can anyone help please?
In addition used diseqc tester and saw a diseq_msg call inside the log
but this is a standalone tool and may act different from the kaffeine
scanner.
regards Uwe
