Really? I have a 5520(?) and that won't work on usb3, I only have usb3 so had to get an adapter. And it works no where near as good as my 6903 pci card. Maybe the 6903 is just a better card.

This frequency used to work until recently but had a constant periodic lock loss. It looked like the signal was getting lost the second the modulation/parameters were changing to a combination Silabs could not read and get back once the combination was detectable. Since STV090x can handle all these combinations we see stable signals with these cards.
I cannot use my TBS 5925 ftm to see what has changed exactly, but certainly it's something Silabs cannot handle, at least currently, so if anyone can inform us, be my guests!
In comparison the CLM package on 11491V with also 8/9 FEC is always stable.
In my region 11496H only ~8-9 dB (need 10.69 dB ) , but 11491V with ~11 dB

Yep, if you need it for that price and all tax hassle.
I am happy with DM7080HD/Si2166D right now...

I purchased the 6903-X card this week. As no drivers seem available yet I have e-mailed TBS support to ask for them to be published. (or at least be made a priority to have them written!). Will update this thread with any worthwhile new info.

Received a reply from TBS via e-mail a few hours later with the driver files. their reply is:
"Hi *****, (my name redacted)
Sorry , we have not updated to our web. please check the attachment. we will release it recently."
So at least they are written with both 32 and 64 bit versions.

Peon`s testing in various bands (C, Ku & Ka , X band`s ready) on his 2.5m and 3.7m antennas.

He would also like to offer his knowledge, time and capabilities to you, Crazy Cat. Peon would be very pleased if you accepted his offer for collaboration. He is very thankful for all your work you have done so far to make those cards as good as they are atm. But he deeply believes, that you and him can push their capabilities a bit further....

Not to only make your CS software fully compatible with this new card, but also to improve Tenow`s older cards such as 6903, 5927 as there is so much potential in them. But you are the only one who has the key to show that to the whole DX world.

A post or two from Peon would certainly be welcome here. He seems to have some interesting equipment when you often post pictures of some of it here on the forum. Any chance of you getting him to do so?

Peon will write a few words here, too. But for now, let me upload first reception shots of 6903X.
He`s testing, so no review can be provided yet.
But as it was mentioned by me before, Crazy Cat is DXer`s hope for this card. :Y
The potential of this card is surely there, but it must be unlocked by one of the finest programmers among satellite enthusiast - Crazy Cat. :-respekt:-respekt
