Ok, now even that is fixed. Changing module options+reloading is not
working test, tv has to be booted also :-) Looks like vidmode=3 might
be correct. At the moment I'm not sure, too bright sunlight to see TV

And I had also problems with getting Hauppauge Nova-T and Technisat
Airstar2 working together. Now even that is fixed, it's question of
module loading order. 

- Skystar2 has to be loaded first
- Nova-T has to be next. If Nova-T is after dvb-ttpci, remote won't work
- dvb-ttpci last

Resulting modules.conf:

### update-modules: start processing /etc/modutils/dvb
alias dvb dvb-ttpci
options dvb-ttpci vidmode=3
above dvb-ttpci ves1x93
#add above dvb-ttpci skystar2 
add below dvb-ttpci dvb-ttpci-budget-ci
add below dvb-ttpci-budget-ci skystar2
above skystar2 mt352 
options mt352 force_card=2
above dvb-ttpci-budget-ci tda1004x


- For unused DVB-S input don't use setting 'Add new transponder' for
  channel update, it will make arm crash
- For searching correct vidmode=X setting be shure to turn off your
  tv-receiver between changes
- Module loading order *does* matter.
