Hi,

I have recently purchased Proftuners S2-8000 PCI-e card which consist of :

* CX23885 pci-e interface
* STB6100 Frontend
* STV0900 Demodulator

Vendor company supposed that card has Linux support via additional
patch in their support page. I applied patch to v4l-dvb and
s2-liplianin repositories. Patched source compiled and modules loaded
successfully, but it didn't work properly. I got mass of error
messages below, during launching VDR application.

# *Multi standard demodulation*
* DVBS2 QPSK, 8PSK
* Up to 45Msps DVBS, DVBS2 QPSK and 8PSK
Is it actually able to do 45 Msps DVB-S2 (in QPSK is sufficient for me)?
TIA

So... any news for support and 45Msps DVB-S2 capability?
TIA

the card is working with patch
http://linuxdvb.org.ru/wbb/index.php?page=Thread&postID=17602#post17602

but why are you interesting so high SR for dvb-s2 ? For me the dvb-s2 channels with sr = 45 000 don't
exist

Well there is at least one ;-), you can look here:=20
http://www.lyngsat.com/intel903.html, *transponder which says 11495 H.=20
And I can confirm it is not a 30000 Msps DVB-S2 as I cant tune to it an=
d=20
alot of other people have confirmed that the high rate is actually 45Ms=
ps.
And I think that this sort of high symbol rate is probably demanding fo=
r=20
the hardware but also for the driver, so I'd like a confirmation by=20
someone who has tested it instead of blindly believing the specs.
And as all HD channels are crammed into this transponder, I am desperat=
e=20
to find a capable card. Moreover it is encrypted, but I can do without=20
CI and using a smartcard reader.
Anyways if someone can point me to some info in this direction, that=20
would be great!
