We give some results of a search for new faint meteor showers and of confirmation of existent one on the basis of original double-station TV observations of meteors. Our results of kinematical processing of the observations made in September 2001 are presented. The observations carried out in September 2003 were published earlier. The confirmation of the existent mini-showers are performed independently for the different years. A search of new mini-showers is made for the year 2003 only, but the results of the observations made in 2001 are used to improve parameters of new showers. Seven existent mini-showers are confirmed; two of them are confirmed on the basis of the observations during both intervals. Besides, 14 compact groups are selected which can be considered as new mini-showers. Two of them are identified with existent showers, but we propose a more accurate values for mean kinematical parameters of these showers.
