I know that mythtv in some situations, DVB-S card-disecq combo's 
had/have troubles, but that's more of a mythtv-DVB-S section problem 
than something else. My mythtv version myth-trunk-15965, so very old, 
with a Terratec Cinergy works fine. I already have for more than a year 
a few Technotrend 3200 DVB-S2 cards for which I need a newer version of 
mythtv, which DIDN'T/DOESN'T work reliable. Althought the same card 
works perfect with Kaffeine. I haven't tried for the last 3-4 months to 
see how the situation is at the moment.
I don't know what 'built-in disecq' means, but normally one gets 1 dish 
with an holder for 2, 3 or 4 LNB's which are single, duo or quad, where 
the output of those LNB's goes to a disecq switch. At least this is the 
only way I have seen it. 1 disecq switch gets the cable from the LNB's 
and the output goes to your stb or DVB-S card in the PC.
I had a look at 
and saw what 'built-in disecq' means. All is integrated in 1 housing. 
But it works according to Disecq 1.0 which every stb and pc-card 
honours, so I don't see any reason why this wouldn't work.

Always wise to do.
