I do plan to have a port of the STB0899 + STV090x. The reason why i do
say a port and still maintain multiproto: S2API is incapable of handling
DVB-S2 ACM (with 16/32APSK) as it is, ie, doesn't support DVBFE_GET_INFO
for notification of MODCOD changes.

Similar to a patch that i had posted for handling diversity some days? back.

With regards to the cx24116, this is of no concern as it doesn't support
16/32APSK in any event.

Or is there any bugfix to S2API which updates the DVBFE_GET_EVENT ioctl ?


Regards,
Manu
