One problem solved... it now looks like you're missing the front-end module.

Try modprobing ves1x93, cx24110, grundig_29504-491, mt312, stv0299 until you
find one which works. (That list of modules is taken from
Documentation/dvb/cards.txt; you can find that file somewhere in
/usr/share/doc/kernel-doc-2.6.8 if you install kernel-doc-2.6.8).

(Beyond that, I probably won't be able to help with DVB-S cards.)
