The TechniSat CableStar HD is supported by Linux since Kernel Version 2.6.33, however without the attached CI module.

The necessary firmware can be found in the package firmware-nonfree since Ubuntu 11.04. This package can be installed with the program “Additional Hardware”. Afterwards, the card is detected automatically and initialized:

If the modules are not provided by the distribution they can be compiled and installed by hand. A detailed tutorial is available at http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Technisat_CableStar_HD2.
