	Hi all,
I am trying since a while to make this card work. Each and every scan  
was unsuccesfull, so after a few more tests with a working dish (a  
buddy of mine with a working set top box), I have come to the  
conclusion that my card might be broken (arghh it is new, but well). So  
I moved it to the second slot of my mATX mobo and now the story has  
slightly changed: the frontend is failing to load, and the debug  
message from stv0299.c is "readreg error (reg == 0x00, ret == -121)"  
whichi seems to say something about a bad i2c transfer. And now no more  
frontend0 dev file. So what does this mean? I mean in the other slot  
the card had a frontend driver loaded!
Could someone tell me what I can do now to further debug or is it just  
broken and I should use the guarantee?
