23. October 2014, we are shipping the new generation of USB DVB-S/S2 Tuner sticksHigh-End USB Stick for receiving digital TV via Sattelite. The stick was designed to receive HDTV and normal SDTV channels with computers.
The software supports Windows MediaCenter and Linux 2.6
The electronic and software are engineered and supported by Sundtek directly
The Linux software also supports streaming DVB-S/S2 via Wireless Lan or LAN to other Linux or Windows based PCs in your homenetwork.
Thanks to our unique and independent driver architecture this device can be used across many different architectures. (for example ARM (eabi/oabi), MIPS (bit/little endian), MIPSEL (big/little endian), PPC, X86 (32/64bit)).
List of a few supported devices:
* Synology NAS Systems
* QNAP NAS Systems
* Western Digital WDTV Live (Media PC, only Streaming) (MIPSEL)
* Western Digital My Book (NAS) (ARM)
* Sheevaplug (ARM)
* Guruplug (ARM)
* Dreambox 800 (MIPSEL)
* Acer Aspire One Netbook (Intel 32bit)
* Netgear WNDR3700 Router (MIPS)
* Seagate Dockstar
Please note that for HDTV (1080i/720p) with Linux an optimized PC system should be used, in order to minimize the CPU requirement we advice to use an NVidia graphiccard with proprietary drivers. For normal SDTV Streams (720x576) no special hardware requirements are requiered.
Since the installation does not require any Kernelmodules or other dependencies an installation usually just takes less than 10 seconds
The USB Stick will be shipped with following components:
The software/drivers can be found in our support forum.
Drivers are directly developed and maintained by us, because of that we can give you the best possible support and if needed always extend our software.

Great product, easy install. Works exactly as described.
Installed on a DM800se running OpenPLi. Connect it up. Install the plugin. Select setup and it downloads the driver. Quick reboot and you are done. It kicks in whenever the on board tuner is busy recording. Switching channels not noticably slower.
