I loaded stb* with debug=5 IIRC.
The sats are in western Atlantic (I live in the Caribbean Islands): 
good transponders: freqs=11093,11555,11675, bad one:11495.

As I said Carrier is detected but the data search algo fails, and, as 
the only difference is th FEC, I guess that should be the problem. 
Moreover as you probably have already noticed, the init values are 
really different between mantis and TT-3200. Manu told me that it is 
because they use different freq (99MHz for TT and 108MHz for Mantis), 
but the handling of the registers are so different there might be other 
differences also. Anyway it seems that both cards have some problematic 
locking for some transponders so the fix might work for both.
I could do some further testing (even spreading printks in the code is 
doable for me).
