A DVB-S2 USB 2.0 Device from TechnoTrend. Supported natively since kernel 4.2.

TechnoTrend S2-4600 PCB

Overview/Features

This is a USB 2.0 device capable of receiving DVB-S and DVB-S2 transponders. It comes with a 12V 1.5A power adapter. Open source drivers are part of the media_tree and will be in kernel 4.1 (but 4.2 contains important fix that is needed if using some applications such as VDR). For older kernels media_build can be used to add support.

This card also works in with the Liplianin drivers, which are a bit outdated by now though.

Alternatively with Ubuntu 13.10 64b and a kernel >= 3.11, you can use https://github.com/kenzodeluxe/s2-4600/archive/master.zip following the installation instructions from http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVBSky (in case Liplianin doesn't compile for you either).

Firmware

When using the open source drivers, the firmware for M88DS3103 is needed: dvb-demod-m88ds3103.fw. Available here.

When using the old Liplianin drivers, the firmware needed is different and must be sourced elsewhere (dvb-fe-ds3103.fw).
