and tuner zl10039 which has also been re-badged  by Intel as CE 5039 .
    <br>
    <br>
Looking through the archives looks like there was some mention of
zl10313 in December 2006 here :

    <br>
    <br>
and perhaps some work done on demodulator drivers here :

    <br>
    <br>
I guess what we might need is some driver development for the
demodulator/tuner . I noticed there is a lot of interest for linux
drivers out there for S350 . Looks like there is quite a large user
base of this card including Broadband Internet via Satellite .
Especially in forums such as this :&nbsp; <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext"

To developers : If any printouts or info is needed please do not
hesitate to ask .

Hello ,
  <br>
  <br>
  <br>
Just heard on the grapevine that we attracted the attention of one of
the driver Developers for our Compro Videomate S350 Satellite card .
  <br>
Very good news as I have already begun to give up hope of ever getting
this card working . Much thanks Manu for getting on the band wagon .
  <br>
And if there is any testing or printouts that you need please do not
hesitate to ask .
  <br>
  <br>
Thanks Manu again , for getting involved in this as you probably have
too many commitments as it is .
  <br>
  <br>
Best Regards

Hello ,
<br>
<br>
Newest developments on this&nbsp; side&nbsp; . Have been in contact with Compro
to see if they are willing to send the source code for their driver or
perhaps compile a newer binary as the one they supply is very old
(kernel 2.6.17) .&nbsp; No luck with first one , but they did send me a link
to a fedora kernel compilation that was for kernel 2.6.18 ,but kernel
would not start . It complained that file was corrupt . Tried to force
load the zl100313 module that came with it but it also failed ( my
kernel is 2.6.22 ) complaining that there was symbol issues . <br>
I came across some interesting info in a Russian forum where people
seem to be using this S350 card a lot for Broadband Internet. One of
the guys was able to use the Compro provided "drivers" and was able to
get this dmesg :
<br>

The reason I say "drivers" is that the way they deliver them is by
taking the whole kernel and taring it into a rpm . So looking at the&nbsp;
frontend/ directory of that rpm i did not see a module for zl10313 ,
but as you see above the card is recognized .My conclusion is that they
must have patched either the zl10353 module or perhaps another . Also
they must have patched the SAA7134 files as well to include card 95 by
the look of it in contravention to the GPL license as well. And yet
refuse to publish the source .
<br>
<br>
Also from what I can see the standard SAA7134 has a completely
different card listed for card type 95 .
<br>
<br>
I would be interested to hear your views on this .
