 	Patrick:

 	I'm trying to get my Starbox working in Linux.

 	I compiled your tree : http://linuxtv.org/hg/~pb/v4l-dvb on a 
Fedora 5 system.

 	I've attached the output of 'dmesg' and 'dvbstream'.  Both seem to 
indicate that the card is working, but I don't see any packets on the 
network.  This same script works fine with the vp1025 PCI card.

 	My box says "vp7021" (not "vp7021a"), so I guess I have "starbox" 
(not "starbox 2").  What's the difference?  Do you know when your driver 
will work with the "starbox"?
