Hi Stephan, search for Linux4Media/DigitalDevices CineS2 cards. Either revision V5.4/5.5 which does use kernel module "ngene", what is upstream since kernel version 3.0 (IIRC). You or your Linux distro just need to provide a proper firmware file "ngene_18.fw". I did run these cards rock solid over very long time in my VDR, but you can't get them new anymore.
Alternatively you could go for revision v6.2, what does use kernel module "ddbridge", kernel upstream since version 3.2 (iirc), no firmware file needed. I do run one of these still in my main VDR using upstream kernel module, but also sometimes with additional packages like dddvb or media_build_experimental. You can get these cards still new at Linux4Media online shop. http://www.l4m-shop.de/index.php?cat=c6_L4M-Twin-Karten-PCIexpress-L4M-Twin- Karten-PCIexpress.html === Kind regards Frank -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: vdr-boun...@linuxtv.org [mailto:vdr-boun...@linuxtv.org] Im Auftrag von Stephan Loescher Gesendet: Samstag, 7.

So I am searching for DVB-S2 tuners either PCIe (low profile) or USB. The best tuner would be one which is supported by the vanilla Linux kernel without patching or installing additional drivers. (Installing a firmware file is no problem.) I have already searched http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/, but there are only a few current tuners, which are documented as "works with vanilla kernel out of the box", e.g. Pinnacle PCTV DVB-S2 Stick (461e) or TeVii S471. (The others good working ones are not any longer available, even not as second hand.) So I am looking for your recommendations for current DVB-S2 PCIe/USB tuners, which work "out of the box" and work stable for a 7x24 running VDR. TIA and best regards, Stephan. -- loesc...@gmx.de http://www.loescher-online.de/ _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
