Hello, Hermann,

I tried it -- and succeeded to load the driver, so I now find the 
devices in /dev/dvb -- thanks a lot !
But:
-- how can this be done automatically during boot ?

and:

-- I then tried the "scan" of my homezone (=de-Ruhrgebiet), and NO 
channel was found. (This must be an error - I am able to receive 22 
channels with a standalone-dvb-t-box.)
-- kaffeine isn't able to receive any channels, too.

I append the output of scan:
