Today, for some unknown reason, my Cinergy S2 TV card stopped working. After a reboot, the TV client showed a 'No cards free for timeshifting' message.

'Suddenly' my card seems to be detected as a SkyStar 2 card and initialisation failed. The configuration worked fine for the last few months, so the card should just work. After the problem occured, I tried to re-install, both 1.0.2 as 1.1.0. But that didn't help.

I've attached my tv.log file. Why would the TVServer detect my card as a SkyStar 2? The correct driver has been installed and the correct Vendor and Device ID's show up under the hardware manager.

My previous card (which I swapped out months ago) was a SkyStar 2, but I've removed all drivers and the device has been working fine for some time now...

Btw, after the problems started, I've installed the software for the Cinergy S2 and that shows that the card works.

Problem fixed: turns out there was a DirectShow filter from my SkyStar 2 still registered (B2C2 MPEG-2 Source,0x00400000,0,6,,). I removed it with DirectShow Filter Manager and now TVServer correctly detects my Cinergy S2 Mantis card again.
