DVB-S Linux now working

Finally I have managed to get my S2-3600 DVB-S/S2
USB Dongle to work! I was missing some codecs. I installed
FedoraPlus and then used that to install the codecs.

I have yet to try it with an Amateur TV Signal but it seems to
perform well with a satellite signal. My Laptop works well with
SD video but struggles a bit with HD video.

When I get the time I will have a go with szap2 and see if I can get
it to operate a 2 MSymbols/s. The card is capable of doing it so it
should all work. When I tried telling my Windows Viewer to scan
a satellite with a 2M transponder it froze!
