Hi
I think there maybe a problem recieving some channels with the ss2 card. 
The problem may be the card or maybe the driver, I don't have a windows 
setup to test it with.

I have a quad lnb setup with sky minidish for astra 28e. On sky 
digiboxes (a card, but no subscription), and a technomate digibox CNN is 
one of the free to air channels. However I cannot recieve it, or any of 
the  other channels on this frequency. I have checked the lnb by moving 
the pc to one I know picks up CNN, the result is the same.

szap is unable to lock onto the channel, the kaffeine scan does not find 
it and niether does scan. The output from kaffeine is;
