I removed the SS2 from the system today, and it seems something went
seriously haywire. Only card #0 is usable for receiving data. When I
connect an LNB (no matter which one) to card #1 with #0 open, no image is
displayed. I can still scan the whole range using dvbscan just fine. With
an Astra LNB connected to card #0 and Hotbird to #1, I get messages like

Nov 27 21:38:11 linvdr vdr: [3269] frontend 1 timed out while tuning to channel 0, tp 212500
Nov 27 21:40:37 linvdr vdr: [3269] frontend 1 timed out while tuning to channel 1438, tp 110773
Nov 27 21:40:58 linvdr vdr: [3269] frontend 1 timed out while tuning to channel 1439, tp 110832

No matter which LNB I connect to card #0 (FSC Activy), the respective
program is displayed just fine. No matter which LNB I connect to cards
#1 (WinTV-CI) or #2 (SS2), nothing is displayed, and I get the tuning
errors shown above. The SS2 is a rev 2.6C if that helps. 

Huh???
