I'am not sure if it matters, but what kind of card are you using as a  
primary device?

I did use the SkyStar boards together with a TT 1.5 card wich uses  
the same frontend (stv0299) as the SkyStars for a long time, but the  
TT 1.5 burned down and my obvervations are from using a TT 1.3 with a  
different frontend (ves1x93).

May be there are any side effects if the SkyStar shares the frontend  
with another non-SkyStar card?
