Hello List,
I own a Samsung SMT-7020S DVB-S Receiver which originally runs an 
embedded Operating System from a Software Monpolist which runs in fact 
like crap. The Hardware is a nice little 733Mhz PC with everything 
needed to run linux on it, which is nice. The Box has an internal dvb-s 
receiver unit which can be driven by the cx88 drivers. I think there 
have been some requests for driver support before, but I would like to 
refresh the question because a working patch is available. I haven't 
done the work so no credits for me, the original developers are some 
forum members in a forum dedicated to the box.

Link to the Patch:
http://home.arcor.de/egalus2/zendeb/SMT-dvb-s-kernelpatch-2.6.21.7.diff

If someone can take a look at this and maybe integrate it into the 
driver this would make a lot of people including me very happy.

Greetings from Bremen, Nothern Germany
