I have installed a StarSat2 DVB-S2 PCI card. on SuSE 11.0 with kernel
version equal to 2.6.25.16-0.1-pae. the system recognise the card as follow:

lspci -vv:
------------

01)
        Subsystem: Device 0001:2004

        Kernel driver in use: dm1105
        Kernel modules: dm1105
======================

dmesg:
----------

===========================================

but when i want to tune it I got DISEqC error:

linux-kluk:~ # dvbtune -f 11555 -p v -s 27500

I tested it with kaffeine and got this message:

But no video is played. Szap output seems to be fake because no data is
received on /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0:

zapping to 5 'Traffic':
