I bought a Terratec dual T PCI-e which features two DRX-K demods. While
not the newest card, it's reasonably new and driver support is < 6
months old. I guess there's a huge batch of DRX-K's still being used up?
What demod/tuner is being used on the DVB-S2 bit? Just to know the state
of support of the demod/tuner.
