[linux-dvb] Airstar2: tuning failed

Hi,

My Airstar2 card can not tune at all when installed in my htpc.

It works in my friends computer so the card should be ok (He does not
have any other DVB cards installed).

I have tested two Airstar2 cards with the same result.

The antenna should also be ok because I have another DVB-T card
installed at the same time using the same antenna and it works all the
time.

Hardware configuration:
Technisat Airstar2
Technotrend DVB-T 1300
Technotrend DVB-S 1.6 FF with CI-interface
Asrock K7S8X motherboard
AMD Athlon XP2500+ cpu
Nvidia Gforce FX5200
300W power supply

Linux distribution: Fedora Core 2
Kernel version: 2.6.10-1.770_FC2
 
I have tried the modules in 2.6.10 and dvb-kernel cvs from 2005-04-09
but the result is the same :-(

I get the following messages when using scan:

Done.

If I use the femon plugin in vdr I get 99% signal strength and 0% signal
noice ratio on the Airstar2 card all the time (with or without the
antenna connected).

The other DVT-T card and the DVB-S card works with both scan and vdr.

I had an interrupt conflict when the cards was inserted in an other
order and then the computer froze when loading the skystar2 module but
now the cards do not share interrupts with eachother.
