We recently moved to a property with an existing dish, and I picked up
a Nova-S Plus (50) for testing. No problems at all with Kaffeine on
FC7 (just scan and watch), not yet integrated it into MythTV and/or
tested with Debian or CentOS, but will in the next week or two. No
problem accessing the BBC HD channel either.

As other have suggested on the list (check the archives), the
Technotrend S-1500 is very popular, but not that easy to get hold of
in the UK (import only?) as far as my limited research showed.
