- Can play video streams using Kaffeine
- Remote control initialisation and codes have been determined
Things which may not work include:
- "scan" only finds some transponders (for Nick Andrew, at least)

The M9206 chip handles two demodulators and two tuners.
The demodulators are located at i2c addresses 0x10 and 0x16.
The tuners are located at i2c addresses 0xc0 and 0xc2.
Also, the device is probed twice, so it ends up as 4 adapters: /dev/dvb/adapter0 .. adapter3.
