TechnoTrend TT-budget S2-3200
This card is supported as of kernel 2.6.29 commit.
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.
- NXP/Philips SAA7146 (PCI bridge)
- STMicroelectronics STB0899 (demodulator)
- STMicroelectronics STB6100 (tuner)
- STMicroelectronics LNBP21 (LNB supply and control IC)
It also supports an add-on CI slot.
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 .
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?
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 make sudo make install sudo reboot
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb ln -s v4l-dvb s2 [scan-s2 Makefile expects this] cd v4l-dvb make 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] make ./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] make ./szap-s2 [options] -c ~/channels.conf [channel]
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 make install reboot dmesg
