I would like to know if someone can confirm that this DVB-S PCI card:

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Computers/Components/Other-PCI-cards/auction-205819849.htm

wIth this chipset: SDMC DM1105

works under Linux (Ubuntu 8.10) and Mythtv.

I would prefer not to be the first one to try it!

According to linuxTV, it is listed as supported:

http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB-S_PCI_Cards

but would prefer clear evidence first.

Thank you for any info.

Cheers,

BM

It would be good if you could get the brand/model of the card, but it isn't one i've ever played with.

The auction owner said it is an OEM product, so no brand name.

It is however probably the same as theDvbWorld 2002 DVB-S from searching the web:

Still a confirmation from some users would be great.

Sadly probably doen't cut it.

Even when looking at major brands like Hauppauge each card revision can require a major driver change.

Basically if you are worried then buy something you know will work.
