have you compiled the dst module as described in 
linux/Documentation/dvb/bt8xx.txt ? This module is in fact responsible 
for interfacing your hardware to the dvb api.

Does it happen everytime after a reset ? If you have compiled the 
modules ie from the latest dv-kernel CVS, dst and dst_ca both modules 
takes in 2 parameters for spewing out more info..

If you have compiled the module in, can you load the module with the 
debug and verbose module parameters to see what's going on ?

verbose, takes in the level of verbosity you need, with a maximum of 5
debug, shows all the debugging related information

with verbose=5 and debug=1, you would be seeing quite a lot of 
information what is going on..

if you are using an earlier version, dst_verbose, dst_debug, 
dst_ca_verbose, dst_ca_debug are the module parameters.

The driver is currently under rapid development, and hence the newer 
additions might not reflect in the document at present.. But trying to 
keep up with the same to a very big extent.

You mean README-2.6 and README.bt8xx were insufficient in your case ?
If you think that is insufficient, maybe we can add more details into it.

That's a good question .. Maybe this should be started off as a separate 
thread. So that others too can exchange their views..
