I have a  TeVii S470 installed on the only PCIe slot of my MSI H55M-ED55.

The driver crashes about 50% already immediately after booting, but also some 
time afterwards, working properly until then.

The related source module is (I think): cx23885-core.c

Only yesterday I had the error during shutdown (preventing the system to 
switch off):

[ 5021.188012] cx23885 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A disabled

I don't know if this failure has something to do with the problem above.

The software I use is Ubuntu Lucid (Kernel 2.6.32-25-generic) coming with the 
VDR distribution yavdr 0.3.

The firmware for the card is from packet "linux-firmware-yavdr" Version: 
1.1-3yavdr1 
-rw-r--r--  1 root root    8192 2010-07-18 21:54 dvb-fe-ds3000.fw

I get the same problems using the original kernel module from 2.6.32 or the 
DKMS modules from v4l-dvb-dkms (0~20101018.15139) or s2-liplianin-dkms 
(0~20101016.14629).

I think I have a hardware problem and I just have to know wether it can be 
fixed with maybe BIOS settings or if I have to get a different DVB-S2 card. 
What is the reason for a "mpeg risc op code error" ?

Thanks in advance !!
