I have a tbs6921 (dvb-s2 pci-e) and it works great! I can tune to a high 
rate tp (DVB-S2- 45Msps), which is the max spec of the card with no 
problem: solid lock and perfect picture. I use the driver from their 
website with a rather "old" distribution: Ubuntu 10.10.
I also have a TT-3200 which works great also, I'd say with a few quirks, 
but it cant tune to the high rate DVB-S2 so I only use it for DVB-S.
