Review of Linux Compatibility

The TV TeVii S471 is a low profile PCI-Express card with DVB-S2 tuner. The card has the PCI ID 14f1:8852 and is identified in the following way:

02:00.0 Multimedia video controller [0400]: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23885 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [14f1:8852] (rev 04)
	Subsystem: Device [d471:9022]
	Kernel driver in use: cx23885
	Kernel modules: cx23885

The card is supported since Linux kernel version 3.5 by the module cx23885 which loads automatically:

cx23885[0]: cx23885 based dvb card
cx23885 driver version 0.0.3 loaded
cx23885 0000:05:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 48 (level, low) -> IRQ 48
CORE cx23885[0]: subsystem: d471:9022, board: TeVii S471 [card=35,autodetected]
cx23885_dvb_register() allocating 1 frontend(s)
cx23885[0]: cx23885 based dvb card
DVB: registering new adapter (cx23885[0])
cx23885_dev_checkrevision() Hardware revision = 0xb0
cx23885[0]/0: found at 0000:05:00.0, rev: 2, irq: 48, latency: 0, mmio: 0xfe400000
cx23885 0000:05:00.0: setting latency timer to 64

Alternatively, the driver can be compiled from the S2-Liplianin source code. The source code can be downloaded in the following way:

hg clone http://pikacode.com/liplianin/s2-liplianin-v35

The driver can be compiled and installed in the newly created folder by

make
sudo make install

After a reboot of the system the driver is loaded automatically.

Firmware

The driver of the S471 needs the firmware file dvb-fe-ds3000.fw. If this file is not already part of the used Linux distribution it can be downloaded from the Tevii homepage and needs to be copied to /lib/firmware/

sudo apt-get install unrar
wget http://www.tevii.com/dvb-fe-ds3000.rar
unrar e dvb-fe-ds3000.rar
sudo cp dvb-fe-ds3000.fw /lib/firmware/
