Hello everybody!

I'm new to this list, so please don't kill me if i behave wrong! ;)

I'm here because i just bought a hauppauge nova-s-plus dvb-s pci-card.
On windows it seems to work, so hardware should be ok.
On Linux it doesn't seem to be recognized correctly.

After too manyhours of trying, googling, crying, ... i'm here, looking for help.
Please, make my tv-card work! 

My Problem:
TVtime only shows a black screen (sometimes with green (vertical) stripes on the left side).

My system:
- kernel-2.6.15 (from kernel-2.6.15-1.1823_FC4.i586.rpm)
- fedora  core 4
- hauppauge nova-s-plus dvb-s pci-card 

My software already installed:
- dvb-apps-1.1.0
- vdr-1.3.40
- vdradmin-0.97
- tvtime

What else do i need to let this work / how can i get rid of those errors?

If somebody knows something that could help me, please let me know!
I don't want to switch to windows just because of this damn TV-Card... :(

Thanks for reading this and hoping for help,
good night,
