View Full Version : [ubuntu] Best Satellite Card For Linux

October 3rd, 2008, 07:15 AM

Today, I bought a big monitor to get rid of watching movies on my laptop. Since I have a big monitor now, I decided to buy a satellite card, so that I can watch all football matches on high quality. I'm tired of watching them in sopcast.

Since, I have a laptop, I need a satellite card with USB. I found that SkyStar satellite cards are relatively compatible with Linux. However, I'm not quite sure if their SkyStar USB2 satellite card can be used on Linux without creating any pain.

I've been using Linux for four years, but I'm pretty new to the world of satellite cards. That is, I have absolutely no idea where to start from.

I will appreciate if someone confirms that I can get SkyStar USB 2 dvb-r card working on Ubuntu Hardy.

Also, I would be really happy if you guys suggest me some Linux compatible dvb-r cards.

BTW, I only need satellite and don't care about watching TV.
