[linux-dvb] SkyStar HD2 not initializing frontend

Please, all you knowledgable people out there! Is there really no-one
who can help me with my problem? I spent all my money for satellite
dish and equipment, and now I can throw it all away, because my card
doesn't work under Linux. I'v been using Linux for several years now
and I would really dislike to install Windoze again.

I would be very glad for any comments or hints.

Thank you

Adam
