Hi Patrick,

first of all: Thanks for your answer.

Yes, I saw that last week but gave up because it didn't compile with
kernel 2.6.23. And since there was no modification for seven months, I
assumed this branch isn't actively developed on...

As far as I can tell, my card (SkyStar2 Rev2.7V) works with Windows
Vista Ultimate and Windows XP Home, see below.

Ok, then I'm happy a good friend which uses Windows only offered to
exchange his Nova-S+ against my SkyStar2. So I'm happy with the Nova-S+
(together with a Nexus-S and a Nova-S) and he's using the SkyStar2 with

Problem solved - at least for me ;-)
