So far I don't know any supported DVB-S USB2 device. The one which is 
almost supported (it seems there are some problems) is the StarBox from 
Twinhan. But, once it will work, it can only provide 8 PIDs due to a 
limited hardware PID filter.

The other one, I know, is the Pinnacle 400e (no PID filter). I have it 
here and I also have information how to get it running, but I don't have a 
satelite dish, this is a pity :) - not to mention my limited time. However 
I started a driver for that and it's demodulator and tuner, but nothing is 
finished yet.
