Hello all!

I'm new to this list as I just bought a TerraTec Cinergy S2 PCI HD and
want to get it working on Debian Lenny/Sid.

I followed
"Installing on Debian etch with Multiproto diver (Recommended)"
on
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/TerraTec_Cinergy_S2_PCI_HD_CI

I compiled and installed the kernel-modules as described there.
After reboot, the device appears under /dev/dvb/adapter0/...

I did not download and compile scan2, since it is available on Debian
via the dvb-utils package (available in all Debian versions).

Now the following happens:

der_schakal at kuehlschrank:~$ scan
/usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-s/Astra-19.2E > channels.conf

scanning /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-s/Astra-19.2E
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 12551500 V 22000000 5
>>> tune to: 12551:v:0:22000
__tune_to_transponder:1491: ERROR: FE_READ_STATUS failed: 22 Invalid
argument
>>> tune to: 12551:v:0:22000
__tune_to_transponder:1491: ERROR: FE_READ_STATUS failed: 22 Invalid
argument
ERROR: initial tuning failed
dumping lists (0 services)
Done.

channels.conf exists but it empty after this process.

I copied /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/channels.conf-dvbs-astra to
~/channels.conf and then called szap:

der_schakal at kuehlschrank:~$ szap -r -n 001
reading channels from file '/home/der_schakal/.szap/channels.conf'
zapping to 1 'Das Erste':
sat 0, frequency = 11837 MHz H, symbolrate 27500000, vpid = 0x0065, apid
= 0x0066
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
FE_READ_STATUS failed: Invalid argument
status 8048788 | signal fffe | snr fffe | ber fffffffe | unc fffffffe |
FE_READ_STATUS failed: Invalid argument
status 8048788 | signal fffe | snr fffe | ber fffffffe | unc fffffffe |
FE_READ_STATUS failed: Invalid argument

It goes on like this until I press CTRL+C.
As you can imagine by now, trying to watch DVB with mplayer or kaffeine
fails.


Any ideas that could help me?

Thanks in advance,
Philipp




PS: I can offer my help for development/testing concerning this card, if
wanted.
