Recommendations for DVB-S2 receiver

Added by balanga bar over 4 years ago

I recently bought a PCTV DVB-S2 USB receiver and an very disappointed with it since it doesn't pick up most of the channels I want, and it isn't because they are encrypted, they simply are not picked up.

It looks like I will have to buy a PCIe adapter and build ny own set top box, but I want it to be as small as possible so can anyone recommend a small PC which would be able to accept such a card?

DVB Sky S952 works fine with TVHeadend. Requires Firmware to be built for the Kernel Version tho. Take a look at https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVBSky_S952
