Use the driver with ArchLinux
The media_build_bst-Software is self-compile- / self-bundling-able via the Arch User Repository. It's something similar to the PPA-mumbo-jumbo of *buntu-Linuxes. If you're not (yet) familiar with AUR, read on here.
To fetch the media_build_bst-Software, point your browser to here it needs as a prerequisite task the firmware files of the DVBSKY-Cards installed.
This is also an AUR-package and located here. Building is simple and done within few minutes.
After unpacking and cd'ing inside your build-directory of media-build-dvbsky, issue a simple
to build and install the additional drivers. Building may consume a serious amount of time; but will eventually succeed.
A reboot is required to get all parts into action. After re-login check your success with
ls /dev/dvb dmesg | grep -i dvb
