Ok, I got the driver for the Mantis VP-2033 (the one for the cable) on
my Turion-AMD x86_64 working.

I took your code from http://kromtek.com/dvb/, patched it with


copied this source into a kernel, configured it and installed/loaded the modules.

Doing a

    cd linuxtv-dvb-apps-1.1.1/util/scan
    ./scan dvb-c/de-Berlin

worked fine.

However, I had difficulty to do the channel-scan with kaffeine-0.8.3.
So I generated a kaffeine "channels.dvb" by using kaffeine with a Hauppauge FF-Card.

For now, two questions are left:
-When will the mantis code be part of the official kernel sources? 
 Obviously, patching and merging is quite complicated and for a "normal user" not feasible.
-Is somebody working on the VP-2033 CI-Interface in order to make encryption working?

Ciao Ruediger D.
