It's really working? That would be great, because s2-liplianin is
S2API-based; DVB API v5 is AFAIK the future. I've only had _some_
success with the multiproto mantis driver just today, but that one is
deprecated and I'm not very happy about it. Now I can see basic DVB-S
picture, but the rest is almost unusable. I'd like to ask you for a
few details about your setup. I'd be very grateful for this info, as
it might allow me to switch to the new driver:

1) cat /proc/version
2) lspci -v -v
3) lsmod
4) dmesg (or a logfile containing your SkyStar HD2 driver msg)
5) scan-s2 (console output & dmesg logs about bandwidth/frequency get/set)
6) which revision of s2-liplianin you use? (could you .tar.gz and
upload for me?)
