    No any success to make it work!
    Kernel module "dvb-usb-technisat-usb2" was added to /etc/modules, but only what I get is:

    Code:
    test@test-K7NF2-RAID:~$ dmesg|grep dvb
    .....
    [    9.134877] usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_technisat_usb2
    .....
    test@test-K7NF2-RAID:~$
    The firmware is on the right place
    /lib/firmware/dvb-usb-SkyStar_USB_HD_FW_v17_63.HEX.fw

    linux-firmware-nonfree, linux-firmware was instaled
    Finally, I have to upgrade to:
