December 8th, 2010, 09:28 PM
Recently installed ubuntu 10.10, has improved alot since I lost used ubuntu. Onto topic, the only piece of hardware I cant get working is my tv card its OMICOM DVB-S2 PCI card think it is sometimes refereed to as skystar 4, on the box it says compatible with linux but the CD only has windows drivers, how can I install drivers for this card?

when I try and use it it fails so It must not be installed right.

scan -x0 /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-28.2E | tee channels.conf
scanning /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-28.2E
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
main:2273: FATAL: failed to open '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0': 2 No such file or directory
Also when i do lspci -vnn I get
00:0a.0 Multimedia controller [0480]: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 [1131:7146] (rev 01)

This part is refering to my tv card
