Identification

The USB id of this device is 14f7:0003

Making it Work

The Window drivers for this devices from TechniSat is named UDST7000Bda.sys, the same as the driver for the Technisat SkyStar USB 2 HD CI and TerraTec S7 DVB-S devices. These devices are supported by Linux with the az6027 driver. This gives some hope towards future Linux support for this device.

Firmware

dvb-usb-terratec-h7-drxk.fw from http://linuxtv.org/downloads/firmware/ 0

Drivers

As the TechniSat CableStar Combo HD CI is a clone of the Terratec T7 card which is supported in the kernel v3.9.2 some small patches are needed to get the card working.
