Hi, thanks, I did want to try this right away in the morning before 
going to work, but then I saw it requires kernel 2.6.13-rc_something, 
and I have only an "official" gentoo-patched 2.6.12. I will switch to 
vanilla or mm tonight, hopefully I can use the same config there and 
won't break anything, but hey, thanks for your work so far!

About the slow locking of this card, I feared that this behaviour I 
noticed in windows would be repeated in linux, but I still hope that 
some tweaking is still possible (as opposite to windows drivers, where I 
never expect something to get any better, because nobody cares...), what 
do you think? Anyway, can't wait to test it tonight, to see for myself 
and compare. In windows for example, theese problems are especially 
visible when switching from one diseqc input to another, and I'm sure it 
has nothing to do with the diseqc switch itself, it's not about being 
slow, it's actually not locking at all, I have to switch back and forth 
several times until I see a signal again.
