Installing DVB-S card Hauppauge/Techotrend SAA7146 under Linux Mandriva 2007.1 and 2008:

1. Copy a textfile "dvb.rules" in /etc/udev/rules.d/:



KERNEL=="dvb*", PROGRAM="/etc/udev/scripts/dvb.sh %k", NAME="%c"


2. Copy a script "dvb.sh" in /etc/udev/scripts/:



#!/bin/sh
/bin/echo $1 | /bin/sed -e 's,dvb\([0-9]\)\.\([^0-9]*\)\([0-9]\),dvb/adapter\1/\2\3,'


3. Copy in /lib/firmware/ the file: http://www.linuxtv.org/downloads/firmware/dvb-ttpci-01.fw-2622 and rename it in: "dvb-ttpci-01.fw"


4. sudo modprobe dvb-ttpci


5. Reboot. Now you should have the /dev/dvb/adapter0/ with content. If not, again: sudo modprobe dvb-ttpci
