Hi to all

I have a TechniSat CableStar HD 2 and installed it according to
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Technisat_CableStar_HD2. The
modules seemingly compile and install ok. There is a warning during the
compilation about cu1612 being referenced but not used. That might be
part of the problem, because this module has to be loaded for that card.

After a reboot mythbackend freezes and the system shutdown hangs,
continually trying to restart mythbackend.

I have tried Mythbuntu 10.4 and Mythdora 12.23. Both systems show the
same symptoms. 

So either my card is defect or there is a bug in the latest Mantis
driver. Can anyone confirm this? 

I have found a thread in a German Ubuntu forum from Dec. 2009 speaking
of the same phenomenon with the recent driver and the same card
One user had succeeded using an older version of s2-liplianin. I
downloaded this version from his rapidshare account, but it doesn't
compile on my system.

Does anybody have a workaround or do I have to abandon the comforts of

Thanks for help or a hint,
