A dual DVB-S2 PCIe card from TeVii.

Hardware/Features

  • PCIe x1 low profile
  • Dual Tuner
  • The card consists of a USB Host Controller and two TeVii S660 equivalent cards.
  • LNB power supply via floppy connector

Is similar to TeVii S480.

The Retail packaging includes full-height and low profile brackets, an IR receiver cable, an IR handset (incl. 2 AAA batteries), a windows drivers CD and an install manual.


Once the module/firmware is loaded it's listed as two TeVii S660 cards.

Components Used

  • RF Tuner (twice): Montage Don't know
  • Demodulator (twice): Montage M88DS3103
  • USB Peripheral Controller (twice): Cypress CY7C68013A-56
  • PCIe bridge/USB Host Controller: MosChip MCS9990CV-AA
  • Crystal clock: (twice) YXC 24.0SDK + YXC 12.0SDK

Linux support

The s2-liplianin v4l branch includes support for the card.

It works in 3.2 kernel. Not work in 3.16 kernel

Howto compile

 cd /usr/src/
 rm -rf s2-liplianin-v39
 hg clone https://bitbucket.org/liplianin/s2-liplianin-v39
 cd s2-liplianin-v39
 make release
 make

Install

mkdir -p /lib/modules/`uname -r`/updates/v4l
cp -f ./v4l/*.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/updates/v4l/
depmod -a
reboot

Uninstall

rm -rf /lib/modules/`uname -r`/updates/v4l
depmod -a
reboot

You must confirm to use the correct firmware from Tevii [1], wich normally is automatically installed by the driver:

cd /usr/local/src
wget http://www.tevii.com/s2_liplianin_1.tar
tar xvf s2_liplianin_1.tar
cd tevii_s2_liplianin-eb8a914cd499/linux/firmware/
md5sum dvb-usb-s660.fw
#2946e99fe3a4973ba905fcf59111cf40  dvb-usb-s660.fw
cp dvb-usb-s660.fw /lib/firmware/

Driver Status

05.10.2014 just work with liplianin drivers, not ported to Linux kernel

06.01.2015 It just compile in 3.2 kernel (Debian Wheezy) for me. The image and audio is bad in some channels.

          I try with Astra 19.2E:
                     CNN Int. works great
                     BBC World works bad
