[linux-dvb] Twinhan DVB-S & Bt878? Why?

Hey all,

Looking at documentation on how to get the Twinhan DVB-S cards working, I
see that the bt878 modules have to be loaded.

My understanding was that with DVB-T/DVB-S the video stream is sent as
MPEG2 and the DVB card simply decodes it.  So, what is the bt878 used for?
The PCI interface?

Not having heard anything further on the USB Starbox support, I am
considering the TwinhanDTV Sat-CI" unit...any surprises here?
