Yesterday i bought a PCTV 461e (DVB-S2).. The Server doesn´t find the Stick on the Pi..
Server is running. Trial activation done.

I don´t know what to do now?!

Merry Christmas

PCTV 461e is too new to work with Raspberry Pi. Its drivers are only included into the latest linux kernels.

Hi Oberon
It's now 2015, so I'd say that's a very long time :wink:
Any plans to get this to work?
I'm thinking about upgrading my dvblogic software and buying new hardware but the DVB-S2 stick that you sell doesn't work with the pi!!!
Thanks
EDIT: I just read that a user is successfully using PCTV 292e with RP 2, but I need a satellite stick to work!!??
