Hi there,

I have an Air2PC Skystar 2 card and a Twinhan 1020a.  I've been using
the Twinhan for several years now with VDR and am quite happy with how
its working.

I recently added the Air2PC card.  Both are seen by the OS:
00:0b.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video
Capture (rev 11)
00:0b.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture
(rev 11)
00:0c.0 Network controller: Techsan Electronics Co Ltd B2C2 FlexCopII
DVB chip / Technisat SkyStar2 DVB card (rev 02)

The twinhan is under /dev/dvb/adapter0 and the Air2PC is
under /dev/dvb/adapter1.

VDR verion 1.4.1-3

I confirmed in my sources.conf that I have an entry for C Cable.  Would
that be what to use for ATSC Cable (North America)?

This is the single channel line I'm using to try and get this working:
Details are:  
Freq (Mhz) 729.0
Video PID 21
Audio PID 24
CA 1 (for card number 1?  -- does this start at 0? I've tried different
numbers here)
SID 6 (Same as channel I believe)

Every attempt to change to this channel results in a "Channel not

Any suggestions??

Thanks in advance!
