Do you mean for DVB-S2 reception? I haven't seen cards either, only heard
of two DVB-S2 demodulator chips: The Conexant CX24116 ($25 a piece) and the
ST Microelectronics STB0899 ($12 a piece).

Reaction from PC card makers seems to be: "There are only encrypted
services transmitted via DVB-S2 right now for which there are no CAMs
available, so why bother making a DVB-S2 card for the PC?"
