You can use dvb-kernel CVS now. Currently there is a temporary 
stv0297-driver which works with the CableStar2.

There is no CableStar (one), but only a CableStar2. I sometime forget to 
write the 2... Sorry for the confusion.

Try current dvb-kernel CVS. As my website says, there is no need anymore 
to use the modified dvb-kernel snapshot.
