I tried mantis-a9ecd19a37c9. Without the change success in positioning 
was about 0% similarly as with multiproto-0448e5a6d8a6. After this 
change the success in zapping between different satellite positions 
increased to about 40% so it looks now promising and vdr satellite 
channels are usable with some patience :^)

Is there some kind of soft-diseqc bit timing used with this DVB-S2 card 
or driver SW (I didn't yet look at the source) or why is the operation 
so unreliable? I had to use command duplication in vdr-rotor plugin with 
my old card but with that it was about 100% reliable.

Which DVB-S2 multiproto driver tree should I follow for latest 
development for TT S2-3200 (/Skystar HD)?
