[mythtv] DVB-S2 with s2api

I'am using the WinTV Nova HD S2 (this is the DVB-S/S2 only version of the 
WinTV-HVR4000, see below "tunercard") with mythtv-18314 (see below).
My os is gentoo with vanilla-sources 2.6.27-rc7 and as the driver for the 
dvb-s card I use the driver from this site http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb.

The card works with DVB-S, but I cannot tune the dvb-s2 channels like Arte HD 
on Astra 19,2 east. But the used driver should be able to tune dvb-s and 
dvb-s2, because I think its the s2api which is used.

So my question is, is the driver able to tune DVB-S2 and is mythtv able to 
tune DVB-S2 with that driver?

So I would be glad if someone knows anything about this topic!
