* For Ubuntu users ( 12.04 ) and mythtv ( 0.25.2 ) : The latest driver from dvbsky ( 120728 ) seems to work ( no extensive tests done, please for those interested, update this page !) with a patch to apply ( can be found here : http://patchwork.linuxtv.org/patch/13563/ ), unfortunatly with a side effect on some other drivers, for example, an a dib7000, it is impossible to lock some multiplex while others have no problem. So far the only solution with no side effects detected is to use the old driver from dvbsky, media_build-3.3.x.tar.gz, with the patch.

''Update Oct 30th 2012: no more patching seems necessary, see further note below''

== Warning ==
+
 
+
The driver seems to have some configuration issues:
+
http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/10830
+
 
+
''Update Oct 30th 2012:
+
Driver media_build_bst-121013.tar.gz http://www.dvbsky.net/download/media_build_bst-121013.tar.gz seems to work out of the box without this issue (MythBuntu 12.04, mythtv 0.25), no more patching necessary. If someone else could confirm this please, so this warning can be removed.''
+
 
+
 
+
Also reported problem with openelec.
+
 
+
The card needs a power supply other than the one provided by the PCIe, so there is a plug on the card. It can not work if not connected.
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
Reported to works with MythTV 0.25.2 & Unicable. ( more context needed )
