Hi,



I bought a very cheap satellite card, geniatech digistar
(20 �) and now I have some trouble with it.

In the linux tv wiki it is mentioned that the card should
work:



http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Geniatech_DVB-S_Digistar



Scanning for programs with scan



scan /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-19.2E >.szap/channels.conf



only get a subset what should be available. Some major
german channels (ARD, RTL, ...) are missing.

The channels reported by scan work normally, if I szap to
them and write them via dvbstrem to a file

szap -r "Sky Select" &

dvbstream 2815 -o >test.mpg



Putting the card into an windows xp box I see the missing
channels.



Connection a normal sat receiver to the same port of the
multiswitch shows all channels.



Any ideas what I can do to get it work?



Best regards,

Dirk
