Making it Work

Firmware

Firmware v1.23.86.1

Firmware v1.23.86.1 is available with the TeVii S460 Linux driver at http://tevii.com/support.html. (But what's with the proprietary RAR archive format? Geez...)

wget http://tevii.com/Tevii_linuxdriver_0815.rar
sudo apt-get install unrar-free
unrar x Tevii_linuxdriver_0815.rar
sudo cp tevii_linuxdriver_0815/fw/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.23.86.1.fw
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.23.86.1.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw

Along with several other DVB firmwares it is also available in a 7-zip file: 728KiB download.

Drivers

Experimental support under Linux exists. Drivers for DVB-S and DVB-S2 (see also S2API) have now been merged into v4l-dvb and can be installed as described here[1].
