actually there is at least this pinnaclesys pctv400e:
i see now that is called a "legacy product" because it's superseeded by
another device DVB-S2 compliant (and on linux DVB-S2 is still a WIP)
i own the pctv400e
it is composed by a bunch of well known chips, so Patrick Boettcher made
the first tentative of a driver:
and i tried to run it just one time with an oops..
i never had the time to work on it, because i've quite a busy schedule,
these days, anyway i'd like to make a second trial on a fresh 2.6.18
kernel and without the nvidia binary module that is tainting my PC!
i hope to post you about this, in the next days..
