Top view of the S2-3600 PCB
Bottom view of the S2-3600 PCB

A DVB-S2 USB 2.0 Device from TechnoTrend. It is identical to the Pinnacle PCTV Sat HDTV Pro USB 452e.

Overview/Features

This is a USB 2.0 device capable of receiving DVB-S and DVB-S2 tranponders.
Upon connection to the USB port, the devices' LED is orange and turns green upon module load.
The USB receiver comes with a black RC5 remote control. IR events can be read from /dev/input/eventX
This card works in conjuction with Liplianin drivers (see further down the page) and Linux Kernel 2.6.38.8 or earlier

With 3.2 kernels the device will work out-of-the-box

Components used

Identification

Vendor ID: 0B48
