The 24th of february 2007 version works allright for me. Following in 

ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:05.0[A] -> Link [LNKB] -> GSI 19 (level, 
low) -> IRQ 19
irq: 19, latency: 32
 memory: 0xf68ff000, mmio: 0xffffc2000002e000
found a VP-1034 PCI DVB-S/DSS device on (02:05.0),
    Mantis Rev 1 [1822:0014], irq: 19, latency: 32
    memory: 0xf68ff000, mmio: 0xffffc2000002e000
    MAC Address=[00:08:ca:19:9f:0b]
mantis_alloc_buffers (0): DMA=0xde50000 cpu=0xffff81000de50000 size=65536
mantis_alloc_buffers (0): RISC=0x30a04000 cpu=0xffff810030a04000 size=1000
DVB: registering new adapter (Mantis dvb adapter).
mantis_frontend_init (0): Probing for MB86A16 (DVB-S/DSS)
mantis_frontend_init (0): found MB86A16 DVB-S/DSS frontend @0x08
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Fujitsu MB86A16 DVB-S)...

Rotor is working allright so DiseqC is transfered normal.
I merged only the mantis part into my kernel sources. This is a x86_64 

What should be the differences to the previous version?

I did not yet try a scan for the missing channels to see if they are 
visible right now because my dish needs reallignement, reception is 
poort, after a storm a few weeks ago and currently it is pooring rain 
here so I was not able to get on my roof.
