Oh goody, we're getting there.

When unloading the modules, I get:
isl6421                 6656  4294967295 
cx24116                17664  4294967295 

Forcing there removal does not seem to harm the system.

I'm not too sure whether it is handling the card correctly, although
it does see it

Other than that, I still cannot get DVB-S or SVB-S2 to work.
That could be because my knowledge of about the sat stuff
is sadly lacking.
