Hello,

I'm trying to get an overview about which DVB-USB-boxes are known to work
well under Linux. Primarily I was searching for user-feedback for devices
which should work according to the linuxtv-wiki
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB_USB

My current state is the following:

DVB-T (this list arose while searching for DVB-S usb-devices, so there
likely will be some more reports/devices):
- Hauppauge Nova-USB-t (see
  http://www.linuxtv.org/mailinglists/linux-dvb/2003/11-2003/msg00674.html)
- Terratec Cinergy T2 (see
  http://www.linuxtv.org/mailinglists/linux-dvb/2004/12-2004/msg00727.html)
- TwinhanDTV USB-Ter DVB-T Device (VP7041)
- KWorld V-Stream XPERT DTV DVB-T USB
- DiBcom reference design
- TwinhanDTV Magic Box (VP7041e)
- Artec T1 USB TVBOX
(all five c&p'd from
  http://www.linuxtv.org/mailinglists/linux-dvb/2004/12-2004/msg00784.html)

DVB-S:
- Hauppauge Nova-USB-s: I found both working and not-working reports, see:
  http://www.linuxtv.org/mailinglists/linux-dvb/2004/12-2004/msg00274.html
  http://linvdr.org/mailinglists/vdr/2004/04/msg00427.html
  http://www.linuxtv.org/mailinglists/linux-dvb/2003/12-2003/msg00016.html
 perhaps this one gives the explanation for above problems?

- Twinhan Starbox (one not-working report, see
  http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2005-October/005262.html)
- Technisat SkyStar USB
  http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2005-August/004307.html

So, if there are any users outside with working USB-boxes, please
enlighten me :)

Thanks and greetings from Munich,
Martin

Btw: It seems that there is no USB-DVB-S-box with one or more CIs
available. Perhaps someone knows more about oncoming "basic encryption"?

the nova-s usb device...
