Did you enable pid_filtering by loading the b2c2-flexcop-pci with 
enable_pid_filtering=1 as parameter? Please try the opposite in any case.

There are still some known issues with the dma transfer unfortunately I 
didn't had the time yet and the equipment to do large tests with the 
skystar card.

To get a similar test environment I need a running cablestar (higher TS 
bandwidth), but the support for this card isn't ready, yet.
