How well is your driver working in its current state? I have quite some
issues with the TT DVB-S2 card using the Windows driver and software, such
as sometimes it being completely unable to tune to most transponders - and
I don't even know if this is only a driver bug or in fact a defective piece
of hardware I got here... :(

Glah... :(
