Greg, I have the 2.6.22-14 kernel under Gusty. I have tried fedora  
slackware knoppmyth and a gentoo derivation.  I am unsure if i have  
the starbox or the starbox 2 I have had some progress. The firmware I  
had downloaded was messed up. I have tried the one of the german site  
that was linked to before. I am now able to get the unit to register  
and create a /dev/dvb/adapter. I seem to be getting the same error as  
you involving the -110. Any eta on support for the starbox. I am more  
than willing to help out in any way.

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for your the response.  I've read that the Starbox one
displays the model as 7021 while the Starbox II shows 7021A.  Not sure
how accurate that is.

Thanks again, I'll go get a Starbox II then.

Greg
