Review of Linux Compatibility

The DVB-S2 PCI card S464 from TeVii exists in two versions (V1.0 und V2.0). Versions V1.0 is fully supported by Linux, while for V2.0 no information is available so far. Possibly V2.0 can be used with the same kernel modules, but this has not been confirmed yet. (Please provide feedback in the comment sections if you use the V2.0)

The card has a RF tuner (Montage M88TS2020), to Demdulators (Montage M88DS3000) and the Conexant CX23880 as PCI bridge.

The card is fully supported by Linux since kernel version 2.6.39 (e.g. since OpenSuse 12.1)is recognized by the kernel in the following way:

01:05.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder (rev 05)
01:05.2 Multimedia controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [MPEG Port] (rev 05)

or with more details including the PCI ID and kernel module:

01:06.0 0400: 14f1:8800 (rev 05)
        Subsystem: d464:9022
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 17
        Memory at e7000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
        Capabilities: [44] Vital Product Data <?>
        Capabilities: [4c] Power Management version 2
        Kernel driver in use: cx8800
        Kernel modules: cx8800

01:06.2 0480: 14f1:8802 (rev 05)
        Subsystem: d464:9022
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 17
        Memory at e8000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
        Capabilities: [4c] Power Management version 2
        Kernel driver in use: cx88-mpeg driver manager
        Kernel modules: cx8802

To use the card the original firmware of TeVii is needed. If this firware was not already included in the distribution it can be downloaded from TeVii’s hompage:

wget http://www.tevii.com/100315_Beta_linux_tevii_ds3000.rar
unrar e 100315_Beta_linux_tevii_ds3000.rar
cp fw/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw /lib/firmware

To access the card the modules cx8800 and cx8802 are used. The kernel announces the initialization of the card in the following way:

cx88[0]: subsystem: d464:9022, board: TeVii S464 DVB-S/S2 [card=85,autodetected], frontend(s): 1
input: cx88 IR (TeVii S464 DVB-S/S2) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.4/0000:03:0b.2/rc/rc0/input6
rc0: cx88 IR (TeVii S464 DVB-S/S2) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.4/0000:03:0b.2/rc/rc0
cx88/2: cx2388x dvb driver version 0.0.8 loaded
cx88/2: registering cx8802 driver, type: dvb access: shared
cx88[0]/2: subsystem: d464:9022, board: TeVii S464 DVB-S/S2 [card=85]
cx88[0]/2: cx2388x based DVB/ATSC card
