[linux-dvb] Twinhan DVB with FC5 cannot scan

I recently got a Twinhan 102g card but have been
strugling to get it running with Fedora Core 5 kernel
2.6.15.x86_64. The card is recognized by the kernel
and bttv stack is inserted. I use the following
modules options:
options dvb_core dvb_shutdown_timeout=0
options  bttv i2c_hw=1 card=0x71

here is what I see:
.....
Mar  9 18:26:18 localhost kernel: bttv: driver version
0.9.16 loaded
Mar  9 18:26:18 localhost kernel: bttv: using 8
buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture
Mar  9 18:26:18 localhost kernel: bt878: Unknown
symbol bttv_read_gpio
Mar  9 18:26:18 localhost kernel: bt878: Unknown
symbol bttv_write_gpio
Mar  9 18:26:18 localhost kernel: bt878: Unknown
symbol bttv_gpio_enable
Mar  9 18:26:18 localhost kernel: bttv: Bt8xx card
found (0).
.....

then after modprobe dvb-bt8xxx
the device is configured:
........
Mar  9 18:26:32 localhost kernel: DVB: registering
frontend 0 (DST DVB-S)...
........

The problem is that dvbscan an szap cannot lock any of
the channel.
I guess this has something to do with the gpio error
messages I see above.
I read that there were problems like that with the
Twinhan cards and there might be patches that resolve
these issues. 
Can you  tell what patches should I get and where to
find them?

Thanks,
Simeon
