Review of Linux Compatibility

The Mystique SaTiX-S2 Sky V2 USB is an external USB box to receive DVB-S2 at a Linux PC. The box has the USB ID

Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0572:6831 Conexant Systems (Rockwell), Inc.

The manufacturer DVBSky provides Linux drivers by their. Unfortunately, the drivers are not yet in the standard Linux kernel. The driver can be found at http://www.dvbsky.net/Support.html. There, one can also find an installation instruction.

In summary, one has to download and unpack the drivers. Afterwards, the make file has to be generated based on the used system, e.g. for 32bit Linux systems by

./v4l/build_x86.sh

to compile and install the driver, i.e. the kernel module dvb_usb_dw2102, by:

make
sudo make install

Furthermore, the firmware file “dvb-fe-ds3000.fw” has to be copied to /lib/firmware.

If the installation was successful, the module gets loaded by the kernel with the following message:

dw2102: su3000_identify_state
dvb-usb: found a 'Bestunar US6831 HD' in warm state.
dw2102: su3000_power_ctrl: 1, initialized 0
