Well, I forgot to mention that the SkyStar HD (TT3200) driver 
still has an issue regarding tuning this channel. It may take up 
to several minutes until it successfully tunes to this channel 
(you'll see several messages like 'frontend 0 timed out while 
tuning to channel 1860, tp 111449').

BTW: Where do these PMT-SWITCH messages come from?

OT: check your LANG and LC_... environment variables. Set LANG to 
one entry among the list which

	locale -a

outputs and check the values of the other variables by typing


In case an LC_... variable is not set explicitly, the locale 
command will print it's default value derived from other 
variables like LANG, so there is no need to set them unless you 
want some of them to be different from their default values.
