Recently I was made my DVB-S Technisat Skystar USB HD tuner working on Linux. I am using Ubuntu 12.10 and Arch Linux, both 64 bit. My antenna is set for European Astra 23,5E satellite.
Recive on most channels is pretty the same like on Windows 7 in DVBViewer.
The problem is with one channel - Planeta HD is not working on Linux, but works good on Windows.
I have check it on Ubuntu and Arch on VLC, Me-TV, MPlayer with same results.
I have tried to set MythTV but I have some problems with that tuner in MythTV.
Running simple testing tool I got this:
Here are some screenshots:
