DVB-S/S2 USB 2.0 box from DVBSKy. This device and its clone Mystique SaTix S2 V2 USB have a single LNB F-connector port, and include a IR receiver. The box is not jet supported by the main Kernel, but copying the firmware (see below) and compiling V4L from sources given by the producer DVBSKy suffices to make it run. The IR events are forwared not via LIRC but as xevents, but the shipped remote is not fully supported (e.g. the OK key does not produce a xevent).
