Introduction

DVB-S Budget PCI card by Twinhan Technologies

The only frontend driver for this card is the dst module. The tuner component initialization routines are held in the ASIC in the form of firmware (not reloadable through software). The oldest card in the DVB-S family from Twinhan !

This card uses the bttv driver. Well suppported by LinuxTV drivers.

The Common Interface is not yet supported by the LinuxTV drivers, but only by the closed source drivers under RedHat 9.0 (kernel 2.4.20).

The card is believed to support almost all major CAM's. No separate initialization required for different CAM's, since all the initialization is done in the ASIC's firmware.
