[linux-dvb] Skystar2 with different PCI-ID

I don't really understand what you want us to do now.
Our problem is (or was) that our cards first were present with
13d0:2102 and then "magically" changed their IDs to (the
correct) 13d0:2103.

When the card identifies itself as 2102 the kernel module don't
find the hardware. (And even if I added the 2102 it wasn't working
as seen in my very first message:

We are only wondering why Technisat have done this ID-switch.
Our two cards (Michaels and mine) are now working for us
but for a new user this is not self-explanatory.
This I think applies only for the revision 2.3.
I have not seen this 2102 thing again with my card.

(Probably a message which is displayed if a 13d0:2102 is detected
should be displayed to a user that he should try reinserting the card
(at least reboot) or "wait until it gets the 2103" and should consider
to get help on this mailing list.)

Merry Christmas
