As reported several times the TechniSat Skystar 2 eXpress HD and
the SkyStar HD USB DVBS-2 box do work under GNU/Linux for the Basic
Service even if they do not know about VCM. It's one single bit
that you must set in a demodulator register. The demodulator works
then like an Ayecka SR1 in dual mode (where you do not use the
second demodulator). The problem of Windows drivers was that they
did not know about that while in the Open Source drivers under
GNU/Linux (once the problem was understood) this could easily be
fixed.

All,

Well I have just built the drivers on a 64bit Centos6 box here (well
in the loft).

However I had to comment out a part of the compat.h (the bit about
next zero bit & next bit) as it complained it was being re-defined and
it fell over :-(

I've yet to clamber into the loft and power-down and install the new
card - a job for tomorrow I think.

There seems to be at least two copies of the szap-s2 executable in the
downloads from the eumetcast ftp server. I have not diff-ed them to
see how they compare - again a job for tomorrow.

So I'll keep you all posted

Regards/73
