v4l dvb-apps hg has a multiproto compatible szap2 version in the test 
directory (v4l/dvb-apps/test)

you just have to set the delivery system option properly using -t 2 for 
dvb-s2

for example to tune to Eurosport HD on HB13.0E i use : ./szap2 -t 2 ESHD

with the following line in your szap channels.conf file : 
~/.szap/channels.conf

ESHD:11278:v:0:27500:3000:3201:0

you should then get some output from szap2 as follows if it tunes and 
locks :

status 1a | signal 05aa | snr 0033 | ber 00000000 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK

the first :0: sets the diseqc switch position but i've had some problems 
with that an to access the second diseqc position on my 2 positions 
switch i have to set the diseqc value to something like 11111, although 
it doesn't seem to make any sense..

with szap2 you also can tune to FTA channels using the option "-p" and 
read the stream from your frontend dvr (/dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0) with 
mplayer for example..

good luck,

Marc
