Yeah, this is good choice,
iam running CineS2 too in rev 6.5
As i know, you running Gentoo, if have added any weeks ago
to the overlay vdr-devel
Be warnend, this package will install around 470 unneeded modules ;)
Anyway, this is not what you want, yust show of an alternative...

Also "Technisat SkyStar USB HD" running here fine with drivers from
vanilla-sources without problems.
