I've exchanged the airstar2-card with a replacement-card, to check
wether the initial card was faulty, and I got identical results. 
So it somehow it __must__ be the drivers.

Respectively: where do I start debugging the drivers?? Regarding
the dmesg.log I sent with my last mail, the drivers do not complain
about anything, but refuse to work, so it's quite difficult to get a
starting-point for debugging. As far as I can oversee the situation the
modules involved are:

dvb-core, dvb-pll, --> of course, most unlikely broken

b2c2_flexcop, stv0297, mt352 --> drivers for the chipsets onboard the
airstar2, also seem to be stable, but maybe there is a new
chipset-revision, wich renders one of the drivers useless. But this is
a rough guess. I'm going have a chat with the technisat-support to
confirm this.

i2c-core, i2c_ec --> which chips are communicating via i2c and
could be some undetected i2c-error be the source of all evil? Thats
still unclear to me, and some hints would be higly appreciated.

I have checked out the dvb-drivers from mercurial, with no satisfying
result. Has anybody out there also a latest airstar2 pci/usb??? I have
this feeling that something in the hardware has changed.
