Hi,

Are you bound to the 2.4.20 kernel? If not you could upgrade to 2.6.x and 
use the flexcop-driver. Or you use the skystar2-driver in 2.4, but it 
doesn't have ATSC support.

Anyway, the driver you are using is the proprietary driver (with a 
proprietary API in Linux) from B2C2. This driver is discontinued and 
incompatible with all linux DVB-API applications.

Again, if you can don't use the B2C2-driver and migrate to a newer linux 
and use the OpenSource-driver.

HTH,
Patrick.
