A DVB-S2 PCIe card from TeVii Technology Ltd
Kernel 2.6.33 and newer
Those kernels have in-build drivers.
Download and install firmware
wget -c http://tevii.com/tevii_ds3000.tar.gz tar xfv tevii_ds3000.tar.gz sudo cp tevii_ds3000/dvb-fe-ds3000.fw /lib/firmware/
Thats it, your card should be working now. If you configure your own kernel, be sure to enable
Device Drivers ---> Multimedia support ---> <*> Video For Linux <*> DVB for Linux [*] Load and attach frontend and tuner driver modules as needed [*] Video capture adapters ---> [*] Autoselect pertinent encoders/decoders and other helper chips <M> Conexant cx23885 (2388x successor) support
Remote support in 2.6.36
Kernel 2.6.36 added support for the infrared remote, but was disabled after it caused nasty effects for some people. If you are feeling lucky, you may try to enable it by passing the argument "enable_885_ir=1" to the module, e.g.
modprobe cx23885 enable_885_ir=1
or whatever config file your distribution uses for that. However, you have been warned, it worked instantly and without further configuration, but after pressing like 20 buttons on the remote my system completely froze.
Use the s2-liplianin v4l branch.
You can use this script to download and compile firmware/driver
echo "TeVii S470" # checking firmware if [ ! -f /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-ds3000.fw ]; then wget -c http://tevii.com/tevii_ds3000.tar.gz tar zxfv tevii_ds3000.tar.gz sudo cp tevii_ds3000/dvb-fe-ds3000.fw /lib/firmware/ rm -rf tevii_ds3000 fi # checking driver if [ -d "s2-liplianin" ]; then cd "s2-liplianin" make distclean make update else hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/s2-liplianin cd "s2-liplianin" fi make sudo make install sudo depmod sudo make rmmod sudo modprobe cx23885 sleep 1 ls -R /dev/dvb/
