Driver and more


The driver seems to have some configuration issues: http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/10830

Update Oct 30th 2012: Driver media_build_bst-121013.tar.gz http://www.dvbsky.net/download/media_build_bst-121013.tar.gz seems to work out of the box without this issue (MythBuntu 12.04, mythtv 0.25), no more patching necessary. If someone else could confirm this please, so this warning can be removed.

Also reported problem with openelec.

The card needs a power supply other than the one provided by the PCIe, so there is a plug on the card. It can not work if not connected.

Reported to works with MythTV 0.25.2 & Unicable. ( more context needed )
