I have a Mystique SaTiX-S2 Dual (v2) and using Oliver Endriss' tree from
linuxtv.org it's been running well for the past 12 months or so, albeit
on an older (2.6.35) kernel. No problems with missed recordings or
I've not tried updating to a newer kernel due to lack of time and
motivation but at some point I'd like to and I'm just hoping that the
changes in that tree have now made it to the kernel because the
in-kernel drivers didn't work very well wil multiple simultaneous
recordings last time I tried them.
