My bad, didn't know -r had to be used with szap. :) Now both drivers
(mantis-v4l, liplianin-s2) seem to work fine, although when I do
something with DVB-S2, I loose signal altogether and have to reboot.
Module reload doesn't help, so I'd say the drivers botch something
inside the HW. :) Will report back as soon as I know more.

Thank you for helping me out, everybody!
