Hi all,
for a while, I haven't used my Hauppauge Nova-S-Plus which used to work 
fine. Now, it doesn't :-(
Whenever I try to tune it, it fails:

Done.

The cable is fine and a satellite finder indicates a signal. The LNB is 
a quattro-switch-type and the other receivers (a digital twin and an 
analogue one) work fine as well.

Operating system is Debian SID aka unstable, kernel 2.6.22 and 2.6.23. I 
also tried Knoppix 5.2.
# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.22-3-k7 (Debian 2.6.22-5) (maks at debian.org) (gcc 
version 4.1.3 20071019 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.2-17)) #1 SMP Mon Oct 22

scan is from dvb-utils 1.1.1-3
