I just hope the card is well supported under Linux:

My Compro has similar chips like on other cards, however I can't get
VERTI on some channels, or a lot of image break appears, where as my
skystar 2 cards are also connected to the same 4x4 LNB and they work
happily alongside the compro cards. If you are ready to take the
plunge then please update us too :)
