  Thanks for testing this!

  I only have DVB-C and only limited knowledge about DVB-S, Diseqc and all this stuff. But I found a description of the 
sourcecaps patch. When I have read and understood it, I'll get in touch with you.
  It seems possible to configure this via udev and solve it with a device hook. But I haven't tried it and don't know 
exactly how the device hooks works. (a little bit of brainstorming)
