hello,

I have a VP-1025 which is based on bt878 chip.
I can use it under winXP.

Under my FC4, it automaticly detected the card it and after I "modprobe 
dvb-bt8xx",there also "demux0     dvr0       frontend0  net0" under 
/dev/dvb/adaper0. so everything seems ok.

but when I compile and use linuxtv-dvb-apps-1.1.0/util/scan to scan it 
failed like this:
-----------------------------------
[root at zhufedora scan]# ./scan dvb-s/Asiasat3S |tee mychannels.conf

-----------------------------------
this is my AsiaSat3S file:(I don't know the FEC,so, I just try them)
--------------------
[root at zhufedora scan]# cat dvb-s/Asiasat3S
S 3700000 V 27500000 1/2
S 3760000 H 26000000 1/2
S 3700000 V 27500000 3/4

S 3760000 H 26000000 5/6
[root at zhufedora scan]#
--------------------

Please tell me what might be the problem. Is it the scan parameter not 
correct or something else I missed?

Thank you very much! I am eager to get this card to run under  linux!
