Rev. 2.3 has a new frontend. If you are interested in the backgrounds, look at 
mailing list archive für march 2005:

There are already some patches in CVS. My rev. 2.3 Nexus is working very well 
(tuning with lo/hi band, h/v pol.). But I don't have DiSEqC hardware and no 
one confirmed until now that this is working, too. Maybe you could? What about 
tone-burst?

If you want to keep your current driver sources you can apply the patches 
manually. They are all located in av7110.c:

http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/dvb-kernel/linux/drivers/media/dvb/ttpci/av7110.c?rev=1.179&view=log

You have to merge changes in rev. 1.177 and 1.179 (which is a partial undo of 
1.177).

Good luck!
