It shouldn't matter. It's a bug. The LOCK LOSS register is valid only in DVB-S2 mode.
It's a simple thing, just need to move the read of that LOCK LOSS register into the
DVB-S2 delivery system case block.

     1935 	lock_lost = STB0899_READ_S2REG(STB0899_S2DEMOD, LOCK_LOST);
     1936 	dprintk(verbose, FE_DEBUG, 1, "Lock Lost=[0x%02x]\n", lock_lost);

Will fix that alongwith the not so reliable LOCK 's on the Technisat cards. Not a 
hindrance though, that being there.
