| 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.)

The module for frontend, how can I forget it?

in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/dvb/cards.txt I can see the Alps BSRV2
that my card's got.
~  DVB-S:- ves1x93: Alps BSRV2 (ves1893 demodulator) and dbox2 (ves1993)

And I start again ...

modprobe dvb_ttpci

and now I can see in the TV the osd. It's so nice.

Thank you very much, Darren Salt. Without your help I think I couldn't
make it.

PD.: Now I scan the satelite band ..., but I think that that jobs I
can make it alone. I hope ...
