Hi all,

I am using knc1 dvb-s cards for some time now - Most time they work great, but 
on a certain transponder (Astra 19.2E, 11826, h, 27500 - "Das Erste", german 
television) I have heavy problems with tuning.
Sometimes it works perfectly, but sometimes I have to retry up to 15 times 
until it gets lock (tried with szap, but same with any other TV-application) 
- It shouldn't be a problem with the signal quality, because I have a big 
dish and had never the problem with my previous Hauppauge Nova-S cards.
The problem even stays the same if I connect the system at a friends 
There isn't any difference between the different kernel and driver-versions, 
Has anyone any ideas what I could look for? - If someone might be able to find 
a solution if he'd get such a card I could provide a sample card.
