[linux-dvb] "Slave RACK Fail" on Technisat CableStar HD2

Hi all,

some days ago I bought the DVB-C Card 'Technisat CableStar HD2'. After I've 
installed it I did a short test on Win XP SP3 - the card is working properly 
there. 

In order to make it work under Linux, I compiled and installed the latest 
mantis sources (downloaded from http://jusst.de/hg/mantis). The compilation 
was successful after I've patched the sources with 
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.24-rc4/2.6.24-rc4-mm1/broken-out/fix-jdelvare-i2c-i2c-constify-client-address-data.patch 
and after I've deactivated the option KS0127.

The modes are now loaded successfully (at least it seems so) during boot. 
However, a channel search is never successful, no matter which transponder 
list or frontend application (or directly dvbscan) I use. 

dmesg shows after the failed scan:

mantis_ack_wait (0): Slave RACK Fail !

I did a search and only found a few comments and linux-dvb mails on the web, 
but no solution to this problem, so I'm contacting you directly.

Here is some information about my system:

- openSUSE 11.0
- uname -r: 2.6.25.5-1.1-pae

dmesg shows (on module load):

ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:07.0[A] -> GSI 22 (level, low) -> IRQ 22

/dev/dvb/adapter0 contains:

lsmod output is attached...

If I can provide more information in order to solve the problem, I will 
definitely do so, just give me some hints. ;-)

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Sebastian
