On this page you will find information regarding DVB-S PCI cards.

Please be aware that:
  • The information contained here is likely non-exhaustive and, despite best efforts to do otherwise, may contain errors. (Please help to keep these lists up-to-date so that they are useful for everyone!)
  • If your device is not listed, try:
    • searching the existing mailing list archives:
      • Linux-Media Mailing List (LMML) archives (via vger or .... )
      • or from the older mailing lists (now largely deprecated in favour of the LMML):
        • dvb mailing list archives (via spinics or MARC ... )
        • v4l mailing list archives (via .... )
    • searching for information with Google or other internet search engine
    • by posting a question about the device directly to the LMML (but please do conduct a search first, as it may already have been discussed!)
    • Note: when it comes to support, it is generally a good idea to try the current V4L-DVB sources because some device drivers can be very new and thus may have not made their way into the mainstream kernel.
In any regard, in respect to the above listed suggestions, you may find it to be the case that your device is actually already supported or that experimental support is available.
  • Because the component constitution on many devices are often similar or identical, there may be devices that are unlisted but may actually work with the existing driver framework for previously supported devices. In such a case, your non-listed but working device will likely be reported in your system messages as being one of those previously supported devices. If you encounter such an occurrence, please do report your success on the LMML so that proper detection/identification of your device can be added within the drivers.
  • Lastly, it bears worth repeating the request: Please help to keep these lists up-to-date so that they are useful for everyone!


Supported DVB-S PCI Cards

The following tables list the confirmed working DVB-S PCI cards and provides a brief summary of their features and components. If you need more technical information on a particular device, have a look at its specific wiki article.

DVB-S "Full-Featured" Cards

All these, so called, "full-featured" or "premium" cards have a AV711x MPEG-2 Decoder onboard. Please be sure to know their limitations before you go and spend a lot of money for these cards. You need at least one of them in your VDR System unless you install the VDR Software Decoder Plugin. All other DVB programs a free of this limitation.

The more modern approach are the decoder-less (i.e. so called, "budget") cards listed below, as every modern computer is able to decode MPEG-2 in software nowadays.

Rev. 1.3 Cards:

Vendor

Model number

Price

Linux-Support
Peripheral connectors
Comments Pictures
Fujitsu Siemens

DVB-S Rev 1.3

supports: DVB, VDR

Connectors:

  • Sat in
  • Sat out
  • Composite
  • Audio 3,5mm
  • Jumper2
Compared to other Revisions:
  • Sound not that brilliant (has 81dB dynamic at 16Bit)
  • 4-5% of the Tuners need a lot of power and get really hot
  • a design-fault in the 5V power supply of the Tuners causes unstable SNR und STR, but there's a mod for that.
  • symbolrates > 8 MBaud can be used
Hauppauge Rev. 1.3 Card
Galaxis PCTV-SAT

DVB-S Rev 1.3

supports: DVB, VDR

Connectors:

  • Sat in
  • Sat out
  • Composite
  • Audio 3,5mm
  • Common Interface
  • Jumper2
Compared to other Revisions:
  • 4-5% of the Tuners need a lot of power and get really hot
  • symbolrates > 8 MBaud can be used
Galaxis Rev. 1.3 card
SATELCO

Highend PCI (DVB-S) [1]
DVB-S Rev 1.3

supports: DVB, VDR

Connectors:

  • Sat in
  • Composite
  • Audio 3,5mm
  • Common Interface Connector
Compared to other Hardware:
  • Tuner is much better than TwinHan VP-1030.

TechniSat

SkyStar 1

supports: DVB, VDR

Connectors:

  • Sat in
  • Composite
  • Audio 3,5mm
  • Jumper2
Compared to other Revisions:
  • Sounds better (has 101dB dynamic at 24bit)
  • uses LNBP16 (not LNBP13) => 650mA (was: 500mA) for LNB
  • symbolrates: 1-45 Mbaud

Compared to other Revisions:
  • Sounds better (has 101dB dynamic at 24bit)
  • doesn't produce that much heat => QPSK Demodulator IC doesn't need a metal-heatpipe
  • uses LNBP16 (not LNBP13) => 650mA (was: 500mA) for LNB
  • 2 Watt safety - less crashes because of heat
  • symbolrate 8-45 Mbaud

Experimental Support

If you own one or more devices from the following list and you want to help with support development, please contact the Linux-Media Mailing List (LMML). Note that if your device is similar to or contains components for which driver development is currently being undertaken, then it is possible that you will pique the(se) developer's interest and can obtain some assistance that, possibly, leads to full support for your device.

However, please note that inquiries to the mailing list:

  • should NOT be treated as an order drop-off line/queue. You're soliciting help from volunteer developers who work on V4L-DVB matters in their spare time, and such work can be non-trivial (i.e. requiring even _thousands_ of hours work). So being demanding is one sure route to being ignored. (Honestly, this point really shouldn't even need to be written, but you'd be surprised at the number of irrational individuals who write into the mailing list demanding this or that).
  • may pass without even garnering a response -- that's a distinct by-product of the fact that there are only a limited number of developers, whom might be able to help, that are associated with the project. Often times, even if they wished to help, their energies are entirely tied up with other projects. In such cases, the best path might be to try to spearhead the driver development for your device yourself, or arrange to hire someone who can.
