@ All TT S2 3200 and Skystar HD users with and without problems.

Please test from http://jusst.de/hg/multiproto again with a fresh pull/clone

There was a PLL stabilization problem, the situation was explained by Peter. 
If the diagnosis was correct, the problem should be fixed. I figured out of the 
explanations i received, probably this would be a most probable reason.

There are three other cases, but one of the other cases would mean 
resoldering the STB0899, but try this change for an initial test, before
anything else.

Please test.
