The SkyStar 2 eXpress HD is a PCI-Express card from TechniSat and is equipped with a DVB-S2-HDTV receiver. It is a so called budget card which means that the MPEG decoding is not performed by the card but instead by the CPU of the PC.
The card has the PCI ID 1131:7160 and is recognized by the kernel in the following way:
