The problem is that I do not easily have access to a windows machine. Is
there anything I can do to test whether it is OK without windows?

I mean the problem is, that the frontend registers and loads the sp8870
firmware, but I have no idea whether that is the right one or not (it
does not want the grundig frontend however)...

When I scan it does not find any channel and using a channel list
obtained via a budget tt card, it still does not want to tune to any
channel there...

Any ideas? I mean not that because the card is considered dvb-s some
potentially wrong dvb-s settings are set somewhere?!
