I'm new to the list and I have been looking through the archives to
determine that current status of the Mantis DVB drivers. I bought one
recently not realising that the driver was still in an alpha state and that
the CAM interface is still not supported. I will be installing it into a
Windows machine instead but I would like to have it installed in my MythTV

linux machine (kernel 2.6.23) to recognise the DVB card but when I try to
use any DiSeqc commands to set the LNB (using MythTV) for my setup it gets

assist in any way I can. Am I wasting my time? ie are there roadblocks that
are going to prevent full linux support of the Mantis chipset DVB-S cards?

Thanks in advance.
