Afaik, the driver should work, but it doesn't :).

This is due to a lack of tests I could not do when I wrote the driver.

Maybe this will change soon, when I get a dish - but I cannot promise 

Besides: the box has PID filter inside and thus can only put out 8 
different packet-streams at a time.

There are other USB2.0 DVB-S boxes, but they are not supported either.
