The driver that I wrote was only for the frontend (tuner/demodulator).  There is
almost nothing that could make a driver of this simplicity be unstable.. It's
either going to work or not work..  The card is the same as the SkyStar2 lines
of satellites cards with a differnet tuner/demodulator..  You can do your own
independent research if you would like, but the Skystar2 is a very highly rated
product for DVB-S reception.. Like I said that card uses hardware filtering of
pids (as opposed to the raw TS sent from the PCHDTV), so the ammount of
processing required by the computer is significantly lower..
