Hm, difficult to tell. It's called "TV Station Plus" on the box, but is 
different from the old 'TV Station Plus'. 'X4' is written on the board 
(see photo).
The windows driver's .ini-File calls it 'DVBS+ X4'
Technically, it's more in line with the "TV Star" cards (same tuner).
But I'll gladly leave the taxonomic decisions to the maintainer.

I could probably find one, if there's a chance it has something to do 
with it.

Been there, done that. Works both ways.
