[linux-dvb] Is SkyStar2 Rev 2.7V supported?

Hello,

I just was about to add a TechniSat SkyStar 2 Rev 2.7V to my VDR-Server
which already has a Hauppauge Nexus 2.1 and a Nova-S.

Unfortunately the driver doesn't seem to recoginze the SkyStar correctly
and therefore no /dev/dvb/adapterX/... is created for this card.

The drivers I use are from the "MASTER v4l-dvb development repository"
of today (v4l-dvb-09fcd9084746).

The card is recogized by the system:

# lspci -v

05:01.0 Network controller: Techsan Electronics Co Ltd B2C2 FlexCopII
DVB chip / Technisat SkyStar2 DVB card (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Techsan Electronics Co Ltd B2C2 FlexCopII DVB chip /
Technisat SkyStar2 DVB card
        Flags: slow devsel, IRQ 17
        Memory at febf0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
        I/O ports at ec00 [size=32]

The following lines are probably the most interesting lines in syslog
when calling "make insmod":

Nov  7 15:50:48 core flexcop-pci: will use the HW PID filter.

So my questions are: Is the SkyStar2 Rev 2.7V supposed to work with the
current dvb-drivers? If yes: Could you please give me some hints on
which drivers to load?

greetings, Alex
