Great, I just compiled the s2 driver from
and loaded modules with scripts/rmmod load which shows :

i2c-adapter i2c-4: SMBus Quick command not supported, can't probe for
OmniVision ov7670 sensor driver, at your service
wm8775' 2-001b: chip found @ 0x36 (cx88[0])
i2c-adapter i2c-4: SMBus Quick command not supported, can't probe for
saa7146: register extension 'budget dvb'.
saa7146: register extension 'budget_av'.
cx23885 driver version 0.0.1 loaded
cx2388x blackbird driver version 0.0.6 loaded
cx88/2: registering cx8802 driver, type: blackbird access: shared
cx88[0]/2: subsystem: 0070:6902, board: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR4000
DVB-S/S2/T/Hybrid [card=68]
cx88[0]/2: cx8802 probe failed, err = -19
cx88[1]/2: subsystem: 14f1:0084, board: Geniatech DVB-S [card=52]
cx88[1]/2: cx8802 probe failed, err = -19

So I loose one card in this process which isn't a big problem.

But my big problem is that with every channel I try, I get an error :
szap-s2 -n 13
reading channels from file '/home/greg/.szap/channels.conf'
zapping to 13 'BBCHD':
delivery DVB-S, modulation QPSK

What did I do wrong ?
