TechniSat SkyStar S2 Card

A FTA PCI DVB-S2 card from TechniSat.

Components Used

The CX24118A Tuner supports QPSK, 8PSK Modulation.

Drivers

Driver now in the main media tree, should be included in 4.2 kernel. Can be installed before then with the V4L-DVB media_build process: How_to_Obtain,_Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers. Requires firmware file dvb-fe-cx24120-1.20.58.2.fw.

High bandwidth transponders (>45Mbps) are problematic, eg 23.5E 12207 V 27500 5/6.

Page Allocation Failure

Some systems see occasional page allocation problems on module reload/init (even on systems with 1GB of ram). The following command may help:

echo 16384 > /proc/sys/vm/min_free_kbytes
