Hello,


I have studied many pages, tried to make the card work. I can tune and 
view programs in windows.

My setup:

Ubuntu 8.04, P4 32bit, Technisat HD2 connected to dual LNB, A heading to 
Astra 19.2E, B heading to Astra 23.5E

uname -a:
Linux htpc 2.6.24-19-generic #1 SMP


lspci -v:
05:01.0 Multimedia controller: Twinhan Technology Co. Ltd Mantis DTV PCI 
Bridge Controller [Ver 1.0] (rev 01)
         Subsystem: Unknown device 1ae4:0003
         Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 22
         Memory at 92000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K]


I fetched latest mantis from  http://jusst.de/hg/mantis, changed
#define TECHNISAT_SKYSTAR_HD2  0x0003

make, make install, modprobe mantis

This made the frontend0 appear.

Please what are the next steps I should perform to make the card work? 
Such as the success report 
http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-dvb@linuxtv.org/msg29608.html


I can post verbose=5 messages for stb0899/stb6100 if needed. Thank you 
very much for your help and suggestions.

Regards,

Pavel.
