Revision as of 20:13, 4 May 2009

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.

Components Used

It also supports an add-on CI slot.



lspci -v

You should get lots of output, including a paragraph something like this:

04:01.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
 Subsystem: Technotrend Systemtechnik GmbH S2-3200
 Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
 Memory at febffc00 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]



A problem with locking high symbol rate channels (DVB-S2 30000 3/4 transponders) has been reported a number of times, but has not been solved. http://linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2009-January/031673.html, http://linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2009-February/031779.html .

Such transponders can be found at Thor 0.8W and Hispasat 30.0W.

A way to use the similar (but USB) TechnoTrend TT-connect S2-3650 CI to help fix problem has been suggested here: http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-media/msg01169.html .

Do you have the TT3200 or TT3650 ? Can you help debug the driver?

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
ln -s s2-liplianin s2  [scan-s2 Makefile expects this]
cd s2-liplianin
sudo make install
sudo reboot

or alternatively

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
ln -s v4l-dvb s2  [scan-s2 Makefile expects this]
cd v4l-dvb
sudo make install
sudo reboot

Scan for channels with scan-s2:

hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/scan-s2
cd scan-s2
[check the INCLUDE line in the Makefile points to the s2 directory]
./scan-s2 [options] -o zap dvb-s/[satellitefile] > ~/channels.conf

and tune with szap-s2:

hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/szap-s2
cd szap-s2
[check the INCLUDE line in the Makefile points to the s2 directory]
./szap-s2 [options] -c ~/channels.conf [channel]

Or install one of the main multimedia applications like Kaffeine or MythTV.

Multiproto driver

A driver using the obsolete multiproto API may be installed as follows.

Installing on Debian (2.6.18-6-686) etch with Multiproto diver (!!!DVB-S2 Don`t Work. Only DVB-S!!!). Install new Debian (2.6.18-6-686)

cd /usr/src
apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.18-6-686
apt-get install linux-source-2.6.18
apt-get install mercurial
hg clone http://jusst.de/hg/multiproto
cd multiproto
make install
