Hey VDR friends,

I'm thinking of getting into the whole satellite thing (DVB-T user for now) and was searching for interesting DVB-S2 tuners. I found that the l4m octopus/duoflex-s2 a very interesting device. While expensive you can connect up to 8 tuners! to a single PCI-e 1x lane (Bandwith should be more then enough). While I know there is a octopus mini-pcie device, I heard that there where some PCB issues so decided on getting the PCI-e version.

I have tried googling for some up to date linux! information but found very little. Are there any l4m/dd octopus/duoflex DVB-S2 (or even CAM/DVB-C/DVB-T) users here that can share their current (and past) experiences? The tuner (only 1 dualtuner board and the octopus) will set you back a good 200Euro so I want to be sure that the devices is properly supported.
