Hello Alexander,

I have just tried running dmesg on my regular kernel which is a 
2.6.22-9.61 fc6 and now I get much the same as above . So looks like 
support for T300 might be in there already . But that is neither here 
nor there .

 From what I can see the brake down of the S350 is : saa7130 , 
demodulator : zl10313 which has now been re-badged by Intel as CE6313   
and tuner zl10039 which has also been re-badged  by Intel as CE 5039 .

Looking through the archives looks like there was some mention of 
zl10313 in December 2006 here :

http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2006-December/015092.html

and perhaps some work done on demodulator drivers here :

http://www.mcmilk.de/projects/dvb-card/patches/

I guess what we might need is some driver development for the 
demodulator/tuner . I noticed there is a lot of interest for linux 
drivers out there for S350 . Looks like there is quite a large user base 
of this card including Broadband Internet via Satellite . Especially in 
forums such as this :  http://forum.ixbt.com/topic.cgi?id=73:2477-18

To developers : If any printouts or info is needed please do not 
hesitate to ask .

Best Regards

Milorad
