Hello Patrick,

I've tried almost the same setup (except that cvs was from 25.6.) and it
still does not work on my system. I do have a SkyStar 2.6d though. If I enable
the epg scan about half an hour later it stops generating interrupts and I have
to reload the driver to fix this issue for another half hour ...

But if I disable the epg scan the driver works fine (at least as good as the
old one). If I can help debugging just let me know. If you need access to my
system I can provide it to you ...




Well, yeah ... I suppose there's no point in getting greedy, is there?
