hello, i have 4 skystar 2c rev.195 chipped dvb-s cards, i was happiliy using 
without any problem since when moved my computer to somewhere else which has 
different satellite system including the Sattelite that i am facing with 
(used to use hotbird, now turksat1c). i am scanning channel list normally, im 
getting channels and multicasting without any problem, bu sometimes (usually 
after 5-10 minutes later) 1. or 2. card stops to get stream, but still can 
lock the given frequency ( also tested with -analyse option ), if i restart 
my computer or wait for half an hour, i can again start to get stream or 
loose the getting stream via rest of cards. while the card can not able to 
get the stream also it cannot get the channels with scan utility. i didnt 
changed anything including kernel. i am not sure if the diseqc number and 
condition of Spectrum is necessary for me? what should i do for my stopped 
cards ?
i have also receiver for tv, the signal seems to fine but not i good. 
according to this i try out something like that,
card0 stopp to get stream which has 1001 1002 pids
card1 continues to get stream which has 392 391 pids
stop card0 and card1 streaming
try card0 on 392 and 391 pids, but doesnt work
try card1 on 1001 and 1002, it works
any help would be greatly appreciated.thanks
