I grabbed kernel-2.6.29-0.119.rc5.fc11.src.rpm from my friendly local mirror and hacked in an additional patch I discovered over at http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/4637/.

A quick(ish) rpmbuild -ba SPECS/kernel.spec later and I had a shiny new kernel-2.6.29-0.119.rc5.fc11.i586 kernel to rpm -i, reboot and tried tuning – no joy complained about a missing dvb-fe-cx24116.fw firmware file. I obtained the file by dd’ing it out of the Windows drivers provided with the card and dropped it into /lib/firmware.
The card started working but only on DVB-S transponders, a bit more snooping around and I discovered szap-s2:

hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/szap-s2
cd szap-s2
make

A bit of head-scratching looking at the new options compared to the old szap then finally:

# ./szap-s2 -a 0 -S 1 -C 34 11798h

I captured the raw_ts using dvbsnoop and all appears to be good!
