about everything is possible under GNU/Linux. You can also just make a DVB router and send the packets over a multicast lan like an SR1 does.
But giving up Windows that fast might not be the best option. If I see the problems Windows users have with my SatPy Starter Kit that just asks
for very basic skills I do not dare to imagine the questions people would ask me about GNU/Linux with everyone using another PC and distribution.

My advice is to contact TBS and CrazyCat and make the Windows driver (if MicroSoft allows?) work as well as the OS driver runs under GNU/Linux.
Finally it cannot be excluded that you have got a TBS-6909X card with a badly soldered 22uF capacitor, maybe you take a closer look at that as well.


P.S.  If the Windows 10 route with TBS and CrazyCat does not work (which is pretty hard to imagine) come back.
