Hi Nicolas,

You're in luck :-) That device works very well.

The driver is not in the official tree (yet) so if you would like to use
it you will need to compile it yourself, there are some instructions on
linuxtv.org, and use the following tree:


You will also need to take the firmware file "SMS100x_Dvbt.inp" (from
the installation CD or windows, or download the drivers from
terratec.net) and copy it to your \lib\firmware or \lib\firmware\`uname
-r` as "dvbt_stellar_usb.inp".

I hope those instructions make sense :-)
