Hi developers,

I have an issue with my old version SkyStar2 not locking on any transponder. The
sat line got checked out fine using an external receiver box. So I enabled
debugging of the b2c2_flexcop modules (using a recent hg checkout) and got the
following messages:

Aug  8 13:40:34 localhost kernel: i2c success
Aug  8 13:40:34 localhost kernel: mt312: R(126): 01
Aug  8 13:40:34 localhost kernel: b2c2-flexcop: found the vp310 (aka mt312) at
i2c address: 0x0e
Aug  8 13:40:34 localhost kernel: DVB: registering frontend 0 (Zarlink VP310
DVB-S)...
Aug  8 13:40:34 localhost kernel: b2c2-flexcop: initialization of
'Sky2PC/SkyStar 2 DVB-S (old version)' at the 'PCI' bus controlled by a
'FlexCopII' complete 

So apprently everything is fine till now, right?!
But next I get the follwing messages repeating over and over again:

Aug  8 13:40:34 localhost kernel: Contunuity error flag is set
Aug  8 13:40:34 localhost kernel: 0 valid irq took place so far
Aug  8 13:40:34 localhost kernel: isr for flexcop called, apparently without
reason (00000100) 

This looks wrong, right??

Using the scan utility from the dvb-apps I don't get any successful lock on any
transponder I tried on Astra 19.2E.

The SkyStar2 card is sharing an IRQ with the eth0 device in my system. Might
this be an issue? Unfortunatelly I can not switch PCI slots since only 2 slots
are available and the other one is already occupied by a FF-DVB card which only
fits into this slot.

What's wrong? Anything else I could try?

TIA & regards,  Thomas
