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
Reception is not yet stable as there are packet losses from the TS!

Making it Work

Firmware

The device does not need any special firmware.
It is still possible to upload a new firmware to the device, although this is not implemented.

Drivers

Support using the new multiproto API has been attempted.
A patch with remote control support was posted here: http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2008-March/024233.html
An updated S2API based patch was posted here: http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2008-October/029830.html
Conflicting reports suggest TS packet losses are now fixed...
