Installing DVB S Card Firmware on Linux

In my case I got a DVBSky ReceiverCard DVBSKY S960C Usb Box.

This card is already recognized by the linux kernel.

As it was also recognized by tvheadend, I though everything went fine , but the card won’t give me a valid TV signal.

So I downloaded the driver from

http://www.dvbsky.net/Support_linux.html

copied them to

/lib/firmware/* (all of the files)

restarted the machine. And … it works!!!

For my other usb Sat Receiver I got the necessary infos from

https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Technisat_SkyStar_USB_HD

Its basically only the same firmware copy action as it was with the dvbsky receiver.

all worked with tvheadend now!
