[linux-dvb] Partially resolved HDTV5 lite and Twinhan DST together + dst module question

Hi Manu,
Michael Krufky suggested I re-post this after trying what you said with the dst module.
Doing modprobe dst locks up my computer. 
Are you saying it replaces bttv and dvb-bt8xx?

I finally was able to get my computer to boot without locking up while both the HDTV5 lite and the Twinhan DST (MOT) are installed by switching pci slots with each other, and then doing:
 bttv i2c_hw=1 card=0x71
However, now analog doesn't work with any of the usual programs.  If I re-scan, it only finds the channels it was last tuned to.  If I pull out the Twinhan, then analog works again.  Weird.
Also, I'd rather have the lite as the first card so I don't have to specify the card # since I use it more than the Twinhan.
Anyway, I don't understand how dst by itself, or with dvb-bt8xx can work, since the Twinhan always barfs without the i2c_hw=1 parm.

What you need to do is just a simple

modprobe dst

You will have all the necessary modules loaded.
