DVB-S/S2 USB 2.0 box from DVBSKy. This device and its clone Mystique SaTix S2 V2 USB have a single LNB F-connector port, and include a IR receiver. The box is not jet supported by the main Kernel, but copying the firmware (see below) and compiling V4L from sources given by the producer DVBSKy suffices to make it run. The IR events are forwared not via LIRC but as xevents, but the shipped remote is not fully supported (e.g. the OK key does not produce a xevent).


  • USB 2.0
  • Low power
  • Integrated IR receiver

Components Used

  • RF: Montage M88TS2022
  • Demodulator: 2nd generation Montage M88DS3103
  • USB Bridge: Cypress CY68013

Firmware and Driver

  • dvb-fe-ds3103.fw, available from DVBSKy
  • media_build_bst_121102, from DVBSKy

The Firmware has to be copied to /lib/firmware (requires root privileges) and the driver has to be treated with "make" and "sudo make install".
