I have a Satix S2 card which is a dual DVBS2 card, this one in the Linux V4L wiki:

From here:

There has been some work on the driver recently by Devin from kernellabs, Devin was saying to me that the driver was pretty awful, it's better now but I don't know how much better! 

Despite this I have found it to work better than my HVR-4000 and HD-S2 even before the recent driver fixes, I've used it with TV Headend and MythTV very successfully but not tried VDR yet.

I don't know about sensitivity as I have a very strong feed from a communal antenna system.
