If the card uses the TS compatibility mode of DVB-S2, then dvbnet should
work as usual (with MPE/ULE over TS over DVB-S2 Base-band frames).
If you want to use Generic Stream Encapsulation (GSE, DVB Bluebook
A116), this currently is a problem, because GSE runs natively over DVB-S2
(i.e. without TS), using what is known as a Generic (Continues) Stream.
(1) Most DVB-S2 cards (targeting at the broadcast market) only support
TS compatibility mode, i.e. TS output
(2) Currently, there's no Generic Stream- or BBFrame software interface
defined in Linux-DVB.
However, a GSE implementation is available in the new dvb-net module, if
you're interested (http://www.cosy.sbg.ac.at/~cpraehaus/dvb-net.shtml).
I admit, its currently not very useful, but as soon as we've the
interfaces (hard- and software) for running DVB-S2 natively, IP over DVB
will be possible with the dvb-net module.
