Linux support

The s2-liplianin v4l branch includes support for the card.

Known Problems

  • DVB-S seems to be working
  • DVB-S2 is problematic (lot's of TS discontinuity errors/packet loss)
    • The reason is unknown
      • Firmware related?
      • Too much bandwidth?
      • Noise, the card doesn't have any shielding?
    • Same problem with Windows.
    • Tested on Astra 19.2E
      • 11303 H, 8PSK 2/3 (ORF/Servus TV)
      • 11362 H, 8PSK 2/3 (ARD/ZDF/ARTE)
    • Can someone confirm this?
