* DVB-S2 is problematic (lot's of TS discontinuity errors/packet loss)

* DVB-S is working fine with fast zappings around 1s
** maybe the early driver state causes the problem
+
* DVB-S2 is working fine with fast zappings arround 1-2s
*** testings with windows 7 32bit works with dvb-s2 and both channels, so the issue should be linux-driver related

Once the module/firmware is loaded it's listed as two TeVii S660 cards.

Linux support

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

Driver Status

  • DVB-S is working fine with fast zappings around 1s
  • DVB-S2 is working fine with fast zappings arround 1-2s
  • S3 is working, you have to unload/load dvb modules for the suspend and wakeup
  • without LNB Power the card uses 4,5W more with a 300W 82% powersupply BQT-L7 300W
  • everything is tested on Astra 19.2E, diseque hasn´t been tested yet with the latest source
  • tested with Kernel 2.6.32-28 (Torsten73) and 2.6.35 (Igor himself)
