Hi Tom,

The cx88 kernel drivers should "just work" w/ your card--if you don't
care about analog, you'll only need to load cx88mpeg.ko.

All the stuff that will need to happen to get your card working will
be in userspace, in the cx88 capture app and libtuner.
Konstantin Dimitrov (kosio.dimitrov at gmail.com) has been working on
DVB-S/S2 support w/ IIRC some Hauppauge cards and the cx88 driver.  I
know he's successfully captured DVB-S TV, but he's super busy right
now & hasn't been able to push any of his code to the main branch.  If
you're interested in contributing, you should ping him to see where
he's at and what you can do to help.
