the dual s2 tuners are pretty good for tvheadend, we're also working close with customers for that part.As for current cards, I've searched high and low to see what was available besides TBS hardware. Eventually stumbled on the "Sundtek SkyTV Ultimate Dual" but besides that, it's like OTA hardware, there seems to be a dearth of FTA computer tuners. I can't believe how many searches I did before the Sundek bubbled up.
No not with the dual tuners, but there are some 4x (USB 2.0) and 8x (USB 3.0) tuners upcoming which will be able to do that.sundtek,
is it partially or fully supported in crazyscan on a windows platform?
Meaning, 'spectrum scan', then click on an interesting signal to tune?
I have enough devices here already, so just curious..
Huh, my TVHE box runs on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.since you are an Arch Linux user, is that since the image was created Feb 2020...

The current driver:@majortom: I have ordered an SD card for my raspi 3b+ and should be able to test that disk image you pointed to in post #9 Real Soon Now. I'll try both the S960 and the '5930. Anything special I should be aware of?
@sundtek: I have searched for the linux driver packages; can you confirm if the 850 bytes (!) .deb file found on this page:
I'd prefer to make sure I can download them before looking into purchasing a "SkyTV Ultimate Dual" adapter. It would be nice to have another device that has drivers that are not broken by a simple OS/software update. Two questions about the device: (1) is it safe to assume the AC adapter is capable of running on 60Hz/110V? (2) do you know what would it cost, roughly, to ship one of these devices to Canada?
