S2-3600 and Linux

Well that was a waste of time! I can't get it to work with Fedora 13 64bit.

After compiling the drivers and loading them. The green light comes on
to say it is working. Tried to use Kaffeine, it found the device but that was it.
The IR remote works and the dvb-utils indicate the front end is locked to
a satellite and receiving but no video or sound and when Kaffeine is scanning
it detects no signal but it does seem to detect transponders.

Other people have managed to get it to work maybe they
are using 32 bit Linux or something.

Enough time wasted on this I think.
