Comment(by stegmaier<AT>sw-systems.de):

 Just to share some experience...

 I patched the 19147 revision with the latest patch. I had to:[[BR]]
 - Fix the typo (as mentioned above)[[BR]]
 - In dbcheck.cpp (or similar, don't remember) there is at the beginning a
 "currentVersion" describing the expected DB version. I had to bump it up
 one revision because otherwise I alwys got a "DB newer than expected"
 error from mythtv-setup and others after the DB has been updated to the
 S2API changes.

 Therewith, it works with my Technisat SkyStar HD2 and the s2-liplianin
 drivers on gentoo box with kernel 2.6.28-rc6. Some comments:[[BR]]
 - Tuned scan from scratch didn't work. The scanning window just sits there
 and seems to do nothing.[[BR]]
 - After creating a small channels.conf (containing only channels of one
 transponder found by dvbscan) and importing it, the remaining channels
 could be scanned fine.[[BR]]
 - Some HD channels are not found (but I think that could be due to the
 driver, read about similar issues on various MLs).[[BR]]
 - Signal strength is always 0, S/Nr shows some value, but I don't know if
 it's reasonable.[[BR]]
 - Didn't test any HD channels yet, since no FTA channels are available for
 me yet.
