At one point I went through the dst driver (which the twinhan 102g uses) 
and added a whole bunch of error reporting -- but it may not have shown 
up in a release kernel yet. If you pull the latest mercurial v4l-dvb 
tree, it will have these fixes for sure.

(I just checked, looks like the patch is in 2.6.18-rc4 and later, so 
pulling from hg would be your only option other than using a pre-release 

Without them, ioctls WILL fail silently on those cards. With them, the 
ioctls will still fail (i2c is pretty iffy on dst), but at least they 
will be reported back to myth as failed, which will handle that
