TeVii S470 Card

A DVB-S2 PCIe card from TeVii Technology Ltd


  • PCIe x1 low profile

Components Used


PCI id: [d470:9022]

Linux support


Here are all drivers from the manufacturer:



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.

Older kernels

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
       # checking driver
       if [ -d "s2-liplianin" ]; then
           cd "s2-liplianin"
           make distclean
           make update
           hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/s2-liplianin
           cd "s2-liplianin"
       sudo make install
       sudo depmod
       sudo make rmmod
       sudo modprobe cx23885
       sleep 1
       ls -R /dev/dvb/

(thanks to ticapix)

This work for me on Debian Squeeze (2.6.32):

  mkdir /usr/local/src/dvb
  cd /usr/local/src/dvb
  wget http://tevii.com/100315_Beta_linux_tevii_ds3000.rar
  unrar x 100315_Beta_linux_tevii_ds3000.rar
  cp dvb-fe-ds3000.fw /lib/firmware/
  tar xjvf linux-tevii-ds3000.tar.bz2
  cd linux-tevii-ds3000
  make && make install
