You can do a few simple things through ssh.
1) modprobe the modules or restart the system.
2) Check for entries under /dev/dvb
3) You can run scan to see what channels the card is detecting.
ex: scan /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/??? >> channels.conf
Replace the ??? with the right frequency table for your part of the
4) cat channels.conf to see what channels scan detected a signal on.
