I hope so

here's information about this card

thanks for your patch. It's working with dvb-s
i applied your patch_scan_szap.diff for HG dvb-apps. And I could run szap & scan with my hvr4000
But only with dvb-s channels.

And what about dvb-s2 ? I couldn't find any dvb-s2 option in szap & scan
How can I scan dvb-s2 transponders and switch to dvb-s2 channels ?

btw - there's patched szap2 in 
but it doesn't work with my card

/usr/src/dvb-apps/test# ./szap2 -c 19 -n1
