A, so called, "full-featured" DVB-C PCI card by Siemens.

This was one of the first PC based DVB devices, and is referred to sometimes as being the mother of many later designs. Specifically, TechnoTrend would produce several popular card revisions based on the original Siemens design. And although Siemens sold the card themselves, it was the TechnoTrend cards that gained most notoriety.


Card can only deliver a partial/modified TS stream to userspace.
