Hi there,

I picked up a Skystar2 Air2Pc card.  I've tried to scan for channels
with it (Rogers Cable in Canada) with no success using the dvbapps
atscscan tool.

I seem to just get alot of timeouts.  I'm not sure how to get a scan of
available channels from this card.  I've tried using a list of freq I
found somewhere online:
A 525000000 QAM256
A 579000000 QAM256
A 597000000 QAM256
A 657000000 QAM256
A 681000000 QAM256
A 699000000 QAM256
A 771000000 QAM256
A 837000000 QAM256
A 843000000 QAM256

I'm not certain these are even correct.  I don't get anything with them
either.  I've tried each of the standard files with the same results.  I
found a one line example from a channels file, and it looks like azap
locks to the channel so I *think* its working.

My dmesg output is:
b2c2-flexcop: B2C2 FlexcopII/II(b)/III digital TV receiver chip loaded

flexcop-pci: will use the HW PID filter.
flexcop-pci: card revision 2

b2c2-flexcop: initialization of 'Air2PC/AirStar 2 ATSC 1st generation'

I'm not certain if this is correct -- are there module options I should
be using to make sure I get the correct frontend?

An example or a channels.conf file would be appreciated too but any
advice please.

Thanks
Norm
