SkyStar 2 (rev. 2.3) - Slackware 12.2 - Kernel 2.6.27.7-smp


Good afternoon,
I had bought a SkyStar 2 over EBay and, today the
package arrived. After installing the card on my
computer I booted Slackware 12.2, my Kernel was
build with dvb-support, all modules are loaded,
but some hours ago I started searching for a
tv-progam, without success. I followed some
tutorials but always the same. I've read about
linuxTV and tried this separate driver too, but
it was canceled by the make-procedure. I noticed
that there isn't a "skystar2" driver in my kernel-
source. So here are some infos, maybe someone can help me. =)

> dmesg | grep b2c2
Code:
b2c2-flexcop: B2C2 FlexcopII/II(b)/III digital TV receiver chip loaded successfully
b2c2_flexcop_pci 0000:05:05.0: PCI INT A -> Link[LNKB] -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 19

> lspci | grep Technisat
Code:
05:05.0 Network controller: Techsan Electronics Co Ltd B2C2 FlexCopII DVB chip / Technisat SkyStar2 DVB card (rev 01)
I can't get a signal with Kaffeine (only 0-25%), and he
don't find any tv-program. "Scan" from the dvb-utils only output
a warning and after that a error, he can't tune. Can someone help
me, please? =)

Thanks in advance.
Regards, Jack.
Cheers

Jack,

Is the i2c_core module running?

Hello songangel,
I have checked the tv-card, all drivers, firmware and so on,
but finally I noticed the card is defective. There was nothing
wrong with my system or config.

I was buying a new one, but at this time a "TYPHOON Tv Sat DVB-S Card CI PCI".

After buying, Ive pluged in the card, and it was running out
of the box on Slackware 12.2 (Kernel 2.6.27.7-smp)

Thanks for the Reply songangel.
Regards, Jack.
Cheers
