HI Gregor,
               The satellite i am using is Thor1.0 W and the TV-tuner card i
am using is TT-budget S2-3200 which is a DVB-S2 card. But just now what i
observed was that the vlc fails to play even simple media files. I ran a gdb
and the dump is given beloew. GDB says there is some problem with resolving
the shared library symbols :(.

                 i am afraid if i have done something wrong with compilation
, I used
       ./configure  '--disable-qt4' '--disable-skins2' '--disable-v4l2'
'--enable-v4l' 'CPPFLAGS=-I/build/multiproto_plus/linux/include'
