Usage with MythTV

This card works great for recieving DVB-S and DVB-S2 channels from Astra/Eurobird 28.2E.

Problems

There seems to be a problem with symbolrate. Using i.e. 21999999 instead of 22000000 solves this

There seem to be different revisions - newer models get frequent reports of tuning-problems using in-kernel module. The vendors module seems to work but may not be available for current kernels
