A DVB-S2 PCI card from TechnoTrend.

There are experimental multiproto drivers available for the device (see http://jusst.de/hg/multiproto/ or http://jusst.de/hg/multiproto_plus/). For S2API support try http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/s2-liplianin.


This card is apparently also available/rebranded as the TechniSat SkyStar HD.

It also supports an add-on CI slot.



lspci -v

v4l-dvb/S2API driver

Since kernel 2.6.28, DVB-S2 support has been implemented in the Linux kernel by means of a new API, version 5, also known as S2API.

hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/s2-liplianin
cd s2-liplianin
sudo make install
sudo reboot

or alternatively

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
cd v4l-dvb
sudo make install
sudo reboot
