I'd like to help but instead I'll have to echo Ian's frustrations.
A big thank you to everyone who has worked on this, but could someone please take a few minutes to
a)update the DVB-S2 Wiki pages (http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB-S2_PCI_Cards)
b)explain how and when all the pieces of DVB-S2-relevant code will be merged into the kernel and dvb-apps.
