I have also tried to split but no success. I must have a real big mistake here 
but could not find it out.

backend trys:
1. Slackware 10.2
2. suse 10.1

frontend trys:
1. slackware 10.2 (on the same machine with backend)
2. suse 10.1 (on the same machine with backend)
3. minimyth distro and various versions of .19 svn.

Someone wrote me that he met same issue with HD5000 adapter but no problem 
with PVR250 so I am asking if someone is OK with Skystar2 DVBs.

I will try other distros as knopmyth or mythdora.
Thanks for help,
