DVB-S PCIe Cards
Many of the devices on this page need a firmware, the best source for firmwares is OpenELEC dvb-firmware repository.
The firmwares on OpenELEC's repository are already extracted, just download the proper .fw file and copy to your firmware folder (usually /usr/lib/firmware).
DVB-S PCIe Devices
The following tables list the known DVB-S PCIe devices and provides a brief summary of their features and components. (or at least it should)
If you need more technical information on a device, have a look at its device specific wiki article if there is one.
The device specific article is linked via the device's name but not all are linked yet. If you find an article (e.g. via the search feature on the left) then please edit the device entry here add that link. Just click on the edit icon in the last column of the device's row.
If you are unsure about how to do it, click on the edit icon for a device that already has a link to see how it is done. Please feel free to create a device specific page if there is enough worthwhile information that doesn't fit in the comments field.
There is also a full detail table.
If you'd like to add a new device (supported or unsupported), please go to Template:PCI_Device_Data and follow the instruction there. If a device is unsupported, please add with which OS/kernel version you tested last.

DVB-S PCIe Cards (old data)
Unsupported DVB-S PCIe Cards:
DVB-S PCIe Mini Cards
There are currently no known DVB-S PCIe Mini Cards. With the increasing adoption of PCIe, and in particular within laptop and small form factor systems, we may see such cards materialize in the future.
