Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-S USB
It is supported under Linux.
This device is a rebadge of the DVB-S member of TechnoTrend's TT-PCline USB family of devices, which were USB1.1 based and of the, so called, "budget" category.
Due to the limited bus bandwidth provided by USB 1.1, of approximately 12Mbps, only selected PIDs can be transferred over USB to the host system. Consequently, some high bandwidth transponders won't work, and HDTV reception is not possible.
- Either the Philips TDA8083 or STMicroelectronics STV0299 demodulator is used
- a Texas Instruments DSP (USB bridge)
output of lsusb -v:

Making it Work
Requires a Firmware that needs to get peeled out of the Windows Driver.
The following drivers are needed for these devices:
- stv0299.ko - tda8083.ko - dvb-ttusb-budget.ko
