i tried to get my sat card going in linux but i couldnt get it to be seen by the computer so i gave up :(

Gone back to xp but im not using my sat much at the moment anyway though it would be nice to get it running in linux at some point.

Skystar2 works fine under Linux. If you don't want the hassle of installing vdr, then use dvbstream in combination with mplayer. It's not so good for channel-hoping, but it does work!

I am not using sat on the PC, yet, but am investigating and with my DVB-T cards I use Kaffiene (part of KDE suite) as this support DVB-T and also DVB-S cards as well.

Give Kaffiene a try, should do it all for you, or as bifferos suggests you can use it with mPlayer/dvbstream which is a good way to test its working!

Bifferos, do yo use DiSEqc with your SkyStar under Linux? I was going to buy a Huappauge Nova-S-Plus but the Linux driver is missing the DiSEqC code in the driver to steer a dish :(

Paul.
