Thanks for the suggestion. I installed some Ubuntu updates which seem
to have changed the error message and it now seems to be working. The
update included an updated kernel image so may be that's updated the
DVB-S drivers.

Most of the channels now work, alrthough I still can't figure out why
CBS:Action is not working. Its not really a big loss.

Thanks again
