2.6.22 had a fix for the 7021a, with respect to DiSEqC.  Do you have a
vp7021 (starbox) or vp7021a (starbox II)?  On my starbox II, 'usb in
operation failed (-110)' generally means tune failed to lock.  This
could be because of a failed DiSEqC command, attempting to tune
something that isn't actually there, or many other problems.
