I assume that you are/were using the old FF-card with an AV-board or at 
least used the cinch Video-out on the card to get the signal to your TV...

The S2-6400 has both RGB/(S-)Video-Out and HDMI-Out. So you can connect 
it to your TV as usual.

The /dev/dvb/adapter0/video device node however does not (yet) exist.
