Manu

with http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb is it possible to lock dvb-s2 8psk channels with sr=30000 and dvb-s channels with sr>440000 ?

of course, the safety is first, nobody want to burn the dvb card. But which solution do you propose for owners of stb0899 cards and who want to see the dvb-s/dvb-s2 channels with low/high SR ? to sell stb0899 based cards and to buy cx24116 based card ?
